Ok, nothing glamorous about lentils, I know. Recipe is just titled Dal and is from "The Gourmet Slow Cooker" book.

Basically you use red or yellow lentils and add a little less than double the amount of liquid. I used about half chicken broth and half water. Saute some onions and garlic in olive oil and add to pot. Book recommends fresh ginger of which I had none on hand. I decided to add a bit of bayleaf instead and removed it after cooking.

I cooked these for just about 3.5 hours on low and they were cooked as much I would have wanted them. They still had a wee bit of tooth to them without being hard.

It's served with greek style yogurt mixed with chopped fresh cilantro, drizzled with olive oil and sprinkled with salt and pepper. The book also recommends some serrano chiles for spice.

Both of us really enjoyed it and ate it for lunch and dinner. When Leo had them for dinner, he substituted the yogurt mix for feta and a touch of lemon. He said the lentils smelled just like his Italian grandmother used to make when he was young. This is actually my first time ever cooking lentils like this and I liked them quite well. I normally use french green or baby lentils in soups but I haven’t ever served them on their own. This is just a crazy cheap and filling dish that gave us a nice change from a lot of our meat heavy dishes we’ve been eating lately.
