1 medium onion, chopped
1 c. vegetables (Optional, you can throw in zucchini, carrots, bell peppers, mushrooms, etc...just something to make it chunkier)
Salt & Pepper to taste

Boil all together until lentils are tender, about 30 minutes. It shouldn't boil dry, a little broth left should get kinda think and create a bit of a sauce. If it looks like it is too thick add water to thin. Season with additional vegetable bouillon and salt and pepper to taste. Serve over rice.
