  • Combine lentils with 3 cups of water in a large saucepan and bring to a boil. Once boiling, reduce heat to medium-low, and simmer uncovered for 10 minutes. Meanwhile, heat the olive oil in a skillet over medium heat. Stir in the onion, and cook until the onion has softened and turned translucent, about 5 minutes.
