You take a pan, you put a big spoon of olive oil in it, you fry an onion for 2-3 minutes. Then you add one carrot (cut in small pieces), you let it fry again for 2-3 minutes. After that, you add 1 liter of water for about 500 g of lentils. You then let it cook very slowly with thyme and a leaf of laurel.

Now, what is really good : You find some smoked sausages a little bit like Morteau sausages and you cook them inside the lentils.

That is one of my favorite dishes and it's quite easy to do eventhough it takes time to cook.

Also, lentils are full of iron so it's good for you.
