Fakkes Ingredients
Order Quantity Ingredient Alternative Notes
5 Whole Bay Leaves    
6 Clove Garlic   Chopped with some large pieces 
1 lb Lentils   Soaked in water from overnight 
2/3 Cup Oil ( Olive )    
3 Large Onions ( White )   Chopped 
1 Pinch Pepper   To taste 
1 Cup Tomato ( (Sauce) )    
6 Cup Water    
Fakkes Directions
Soak the lentils in water overnight.

Rinse and strain the lentils.

Chop the onions and garlic. It's nice to leave large chunks of each.

Place olive oil in a large pot and sautee the onions and garlic.

Once the onions and garlic have taken some color, carefully add the water. Be careful because the oil will react violently to the cold water.

Bring to a near boil and add the tomato sauce, salt and pepper. Be careful not to add too much salt as the soup will reduce.

Bring the soup to a boil and add the rest of your spices.

Slowly simmer for about an hour or until the soup thickens and the lentils soften.
