  • 1 cup brown lentils, rinsed and sorted

  • 2 tablespoons chopped oil-packed sun-dried tomatoes, rinsed and drained
  • 2 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
  • 1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1 bay leaf

  1. Bruise one of the garlic cloves with the backside of a knife.

Drain and discard the bay leaf and garlic.
