  • 1 bag of dried lentils, rinsed
  • 2 potatoes diced
  • 1 large tomato diced
  • 1 large onion chopped
  • 2 garlic cloves minced
  • 1 knorr cube
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil (you can use cooking spray instead)
  1. In a large pot add lentils and enough water to go approximately 3 inches above lentils. Bring to a boil and add potatoes. Bring to a simmer and stir occasionally.
  2. In a fry pan, saute onion, garlic, tomato and knorr cube with olive oil or cooking spray. This is called the sofrito.
  3. After potato and lentils are soft (20-30 minutes) add the sofrito to the pot. Cook at a low simmer for 30 minutes. Season with salt & pepper to taste.
