• Lentils – as much as you’d like to eat
  • Water – twice as much water as you have lentils
  • Extra Virgin Olive Oil – a couple spoonfuls
  • Sage – as much as suits your taste (enough to make lentils “sagey”)
  • Salt – enough to suit your taste
  • Herbs of other types – as much as you like


Rinse lentils and put them in a pot. Add water. Toss in the olive oil, sage, and salt. Cook for 40 minutes and taste. If you prefer, add more sage, olive oil, and/or salt.

Mmm, lentils are good with sage.

Serves: 1 – lots
