  • Water


In a medium-large saucepan boil lentils in water for about 30 - 40 minutes
(or until thoroughly cooked). While these are cooking, chop onions and
tomatoes. In a very large skillet or pan, sautee onions until they are just

ready to eat. Just sprinkle on top of the stew, or any pasta dish for that
