 Savory Red Lentils
 
 Made for dinner:
 
 1 cup red lentils (picked through)
 1 onion
 1 Tbsp. minced garlic (many many cloves)
 1/2 tsp. salt
 1/4 tsp. dill
 1/2 tsp. savory
 1/2 tsp. chili powder
 2 cups water
 
 Saute chopped onion and garlic in water (of course) for several
 minutes.  Rinse red lentils (mine always have bug carcasses in 'em, so
 it’s a good idea that you do so), and add with the rest of the
 ingredients.  Bring to a boil, cover, and simmer for 15 minutes.
 Uncover and cook for a few minutes more - 5 or so if you want to.
 This last step is not mandatory, but I didn't use enough water (only 1
 1/2 cups), so I added 1/2 cup more and let it mix for a couple of
 minutes.
 
 Slop this up with some good fresh bread.  I had some French Meadow
 Summer Bread - basil flavor.  I warmed a chunk up in the microwave.
