Lentejas (Lentils) -- A New Year Tradition

Last year I made an extensive list of Colombian New Year Holiday traditions. You can read more about them here:



One thing I promised was the Lenteja recipe -- and well -- here it is:


1 lb. of lentils
1 can tomato sauce
1 medium onion minced
2 teaspoons dry chicken broth
1 teaspoon garlic powder
Salt as needed
Cumin (optional)


#1 Cook lentils in water as per directions on package -- do not salt or drain.
#2 In a sauce pan, put other ingredients and cook 10 minutes.
#3 Add sauce pan ingredients to cooked lentils. Let simmer together for 10-15 minutes -- don't let it burn.
#4 Let cool and serve with white rice.
