~ More with Less: A World Community Cookbook
1 lb. lentils
1 small bay leaf
2 t. salt
5 c. water
1 t. dry mustard
1/4 t. ground ginger
1 T. soy sauce
1/2 c. chopped onion
1 c. water
1/3 c. honey
In a Dutch oven or saucepan, combine lentils, bay leaf, salt, and five cups of water. Bring to a boil. Cover, reduce heat, and simmer 30 minutes. Discard bay leaf.
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. In a small bowl, combine dry mustard, ginger, soy sauce, onions, and one cup of water. Add mixture to lentils, then pour honey on top.
Cover tightly and bake for one hour. Serve over rice.
Notes: We make this in a Lodge cast iron Dutch oven and it's done baking after about 45 minutes.
