Lentils...And Yet Another Recipe

We have to eat lentils once a week.   Just lentils - therefore we need to find different ways to cook them. Of course you can have lentils as a side dish, or mixed with rice or many other ways but alone....difficult.
You will need:
Serves 4
-  250 gms of brown lentils.
-  4 bay leaves.
-  4 - 6 cloves of garlic, crushed and finely chopped.
-  2 medium onions roughly chopped.
-  salt and freshly ground pepper.
-  2 fresh tomatoes finely chopped.
-  1 can sweet corn drained (285 gms. net).
Method:
-  Add lentils, onion, garlic, and bay leaves, in deep saucepan cover with water bring to a boil, simmer till lentils are cooked. Throw away the bay leaves trying not to forget one.
-  With vertical blender purée the lentils as shown in picture.
-  Add salt and pepper to taste.


-  Add the chopped tomatoes and corn.
Serve in soup dish and iff (mathematical term meaning if and an only if) you wish, cut a few slices of chili. (By the way this is one of the chilies I am wearing around my neck in my Facebook profile picture, I told you they were going to turn red).

Bon Appétit,
Stelio
