1 red onion

3 chopped pieces of sun-dried tomato

1 teaspoon of garlic powder
¼ teaspoon chilli powder

In a pot containing 4-5 cups of lukewarm water, place the lentils, chopped onions and garlic, bay leaves and garlic powder.
Boil for 30 minutes and add salt and pepper along with half jar of flaming red pepper spread.
