       3 c  Water
       1 c  Lentils
       1 tb Olive oil
       4    Cloves garlic, minced
     1/2 c  Chopped scallions,
            -including some green
     1/2 c  Chopped sweet green pepper
     1/2 ts Crushed cumin seeds OR

   When the lentils are cooked, add the vegetable mixture to the
   lentils, and heat the mixture through before serving it.
   
   Note: serve over rice or with corn.
