Default Syrian Lentils in a Spicy Tomato Sauce

Syrian Lentils in a Spicy Tomato Sauce

1 cup dried red or brown lentils, rinsed
4 cups water
1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil
1 onion, sliced
2 garlic cloves, minced
1 (28oz) can peeled tomatoes
2 tablespoons tomato paste
1 tablespoon ground cumin
3/4 teaspoon ground allspice
1/2 teaspoon ground coriander
1/2 teaspoon paprika
Salt and freshly ground black pepper

In a medium saucepan, combine the lentils and water. Cover and bring to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer until the lentils are tender but still retain their shape, about 30 minutes. Do not drain.

In another saucepan, heat the oil over medium heat. Add the onions and garlic and saute until the onions are golden. Add the lentils and cooking liquid.
Run a knife throught the can of tomatoes to chop and add without draining, to the lentils along with the tomato paste. Add the cumin, allspice, coriander, and paprika. Simmer for 15 minutes. Add salt and pepper to taste.
