1/2 small chopped sweet onion
chopped butter
12 ounces whole green lentils
1/2 cup chopped lovage
1 sprig of fresh thyme
orange zest/peel
chicken stock or water

Sauté the chopped onions in the butter to soften but do not brown. Stir in the lentils. Add the chopped lovage, thyme, one strip on orange peel or a small amount of zest and stock. Cover and simmer until tender. Remove the lentil mixture with a slotted spoon and reduce the liquid in the pan, while adding a little more butter and salt and pepper to taste. Serve over the lentil mixture. Serves 4.
