Misir Wot
by rcoen

from Tipperary, Ireland

1 cup Red lentils
2 cup Water
1 large Onion; finely chopped
2 tablespoon Olive oil; more or less
2 Cloves garlic; minced
2 tablespoon Berbere mix

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 (recipe available here) 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.
