Misir Wot (Spiced Lentil Mush)

  • Recipe Submitted by on

Category: Vegetables

 Ingredients List

  • 1 1/2 c Red lentils
  • 2 c Water
  • 1 lg Onion; finely chopped
  • 2 tb Olive oil; more or less
  • 2 Cloves garlic; minced
  • 2 tb Berbere mix
  • Little water


For Misir Wot, cook 1 1/2 cups red lentils in 2 cups water for about a 1/2
hour. Then, saute a large finely chopped onion in a couple tbsp. olive oil
in a large skillet until clear. Add a couple minced cloves of garlic, saute
a little more, then put in 2 tbsp. berbere mix (see recipe for "Berbere")
and a little water to keep it from sticking. Add the cooked lentils, and
cook everything on low until the lentils completely disintigrate - about
1/2 hour again. If you prefer the dish to look red rather than yellowish,
sprinkle in some sweet paprika at the end. The recipe says "serves 8", but
it's more like 4 in my house.
