Green Lentils

This is a traditional dish that we eat on New Years Eve. These green lentils are wonderful, they take a little longer to cook than the regular but are worth it for the taste. My niece gave me lion head bowls for xmas and I immediately had to do something. I really love these bowls.
1 onion minced
2 garlic cloves, minced
1 tsp cumin
extra virgin olive oil as needed, maybe 2 tablespoons or so
4 tomatoes cut up
1 jalapeno cut up (this is optional)
1 cup French green lentils
1 liter of stock
salt & pepper to taste

In a saucepan combine, the olive oil, onions, garlic, cumin and a pinch of salt and pepper. Cook for a few minutes, add tomatoes, jalapeno, stock, lentils.

Simmer for about 35 to 40 minutes till lentils are tender.
