Ingredients:

1 quart water

2 minced garlic cloves

8 oz. bag of stemmed, washed (uncooked) spinach

½ cup lentils

In large saucepan, combine water, lentils, carrot, onion, garlic, and bay leaf. Season with salt and pepper. Bring to a boil. Lower the heat and simmer, partially covered, until the lentils are soft, 15-20 minutes. Drain, discarding bay leaf. Use a paper towel to wipe out any water from the saucepan.

Use a slotted spoon to transfer to serving bowls. Serves 4.
