2 Cups lentils
4 Cups water (I added a bit more near end of cooking)
1/4 Cup Extra Virgin Olive Oil
3 spring onions - chopped (I used green onions)
2 cloves garlic - minced
1 tsp. baking powder
1 tsp. cumin
1 tsp. salt or to taste
Black pepper to taste
Mix together and simmer on low for 1-2 hrs.
It was so amazing to spend
a few days "in the first century" village......
having the opportunity to help with the Olive Harvest!
We felt like we really were back in the time of Jesus,
plucking olives from the ancient trees!
There is even an authentic ancient Olive press there, not to
mention a real donkey that obediently turns the large pressing stone!
If you want to visit the Nazareth Village's web site
you will see the video clip called Olive Harvest 2012 of us bringing in the harvest
of the day led by David theShepherd!!
