In the Kitchen: Green Lentils with Lovage


Ingredients

1/2 small chopped sweet onion
1 garlic clove
1 tablespoon olive oil
12 ounces whole green lentils, rinsed and strained
1/2 cup chopped lovage (I couldn't find any at our grocery, so I used parsley)
3 sprigs fresh thyme
1/2 teaspoon orange zest
3-4 cups water

Directions

Chop the onion, lovage, and thyme and set aside.

Heat skillet over medium-high heat and add the olive oil.  Sautee the chopped onions for 5 minutes, stiring occassionally.  When the onions begin to soften, add the garlic until they begin to soften, but not brown. Once the onions and garlic have softened completely (about 8-10 minutes total), stir in the lentils and water. 

Add the chopped lovage, thyme, and orange zest.  Bring the mixture to a boil then reduce to low-medium heat, cover and simmer until tender.

Remove the lentil mixture with a slotted spoon if any liquid is left. Reduce the liquid in the pan, while adding a little more olive oil and salt and pepper to taste.
