Sundays are days to cook staples for the week, for example lentils! Typically, I prefer beluga lentils or French lentils, because of their looks, color, and flavor but I still had a whole jar with regular plain old gray lentils. How to make them a bit tastier? Aromatics to the rescue (this recipes works for all kinds of lentils). Spike a peeled, half medium-sized onion with cloves, add a bay leaf and 2 garlic cloves, and cook for 30min until soften. Discard the onion, bay leaf and garlic. Delicious!
