Instructions
  1. Rinse the lentils over running water and pick out the broken ones or any small stones. Put the lentils in 3 cups of water and bring to a boil. Simmer gently, until tender, about 25-30 minutes.
  2. While lentils cook, very finely mince fresh garlic cloves. Heat 2 Tbsp of olive oil in small frying pan, add garlic, and saute over low heat for about 7-8 mins.
  3. While garlic cooks, finely chop your desired amount of fresh herbs, mint and parsley.
  4. In a small bowl whisk together lemon juice, the other 2 T of olive oil, ground cumin, and ground allspice.
  5. When lentils are tender, drain well and return to the pan. Turn heat back on under pan with the garlic and add lemon dressing mixture to heat for about 1 min.
  6. Pour heated dressing over the lentils, then gently stir in fresh herbs. Season with salt and pepper.
