Prep time:  5 mins Cook time:  10 mins Total time:  15 mins
Serves: 4 Servings

For the sauce:
2 Cups water
¼ Cup Soy Sauce
2-3 Tablespoons Brown Sugar
2 Cloves of Garlic, minced
1" Piece of Ginger, minced
1 Teaspoon Sesame Oil
½ Teaspoon Crushed Red Pepper Flakes

For the Lentils:
1 Tablespoon Light Oil (such as canola, vegetable, or peanut oil)
½ an Onion, chopped
1 Cup Red Lentils
2 Green Onions, chopped
1 Tablespoon Sesame Seeds
Cooked Rice for Serving

In a medium bow, mix together all the sauce ingredients.
Heat the oil in a skillet over medium heat, then add the onion and sauté for a few minutes until the onion softens and begins to brown. Now add the lentils and the sauce. Cover and simmer until the lentils are cooked and tender, and most of the liquid is absorbed, about 8 to 10 minutes.
Serve by spooning over rice, and garnishing with the green onions and sesame seeds.
