    Wash the lentils and place them in a pan with the
   water. Cover and cook for about 40 minutes, or until
   the water is absorbed.
   
    Heat the oil in a skillet; add the celery, onion,
   thyme, cinnamon, and cloves. Saute until the celery is
   just barely tender.
   
    Add the cooked lentils to the celery-onion mixture;
   then add the remaining ingredients. Mix well. Spread
   the mixture into an unbaked pie shell. Cover with the
   top crust. Flute the edges and cut a hole into the top
   crust to allow steam to escape.
   
    Bake at 375 degrees for 40 minutes, or until the
   crust is golden brown.
   
    Serve with a steamed vegetable and a green salad. The
   lentil pie is also good with a sauce or some homemade
   relish.
