Lentils with Pork Loin
Spiced lentils cooked with lean roast pork loin.
||Rinse lentils in cold water. Set aside.
||Dice onions and tomatoes. Slice a carrot into small strips, or buy "matchstick" carrots, use a 1/4 cup or more to your taste. Set aside.
||Cut leftover pork loin into small pieces. Approximately 8 ounces. Set aside.
||Sauté onions in olive oil until soft. Add tomatoes and carrots. Add listed spices, measure to your own taste. Sauté all ingredients for five minutes.
||Add pork pieces. Add enough cold water to cover.
||Bring to a boil. Turn down and cook until lentils are tender. (You can also cook this in a pressure cooker, following the same instructions, but the cook time will be shorter.)
||Serve alone or the side dish of your choice. Rice makes a good side dish, if your diet allows.
