Mie's Yummy Lentils

We made Mie's Yummy Lentils for dinner tonight and thoroughly enjoyed them. I added a diced eggplant to the onion mixture, as well as some reconstituted dried seaweed. I only used about a tablespoon of oil, and added water to the onion mixture to keep it from sticking too much. Tasty stuff!
2c lentils
28oz. canned tomatoes
6 cloves of garlic, chopped
1 large onion, finely chopped
1/3c cilantro
1/6c parsley
1/2c veg oil, 1/4c olive oil (i usually use a lot less)
2tsp cumin
1/4tsp red pepper
1tsp paprika
1/16tsp turmeric

add lentils to 5c boiling water. cover, simmer for 6 min. turn off and let sit.
in separate pot, combine all non-lentil ingredients except tomatoes. cook and stir until onions are browned. add tomatoes. Add tomato mixture to lentils. cover and simmer for .. uh... like 30 minutes.
