Directions

  1. In a saucepan over medium-high heat melt the butter and add the garlic. Stir and cook until just beginning to brown, about 1 minute.
  2. Add the yellow lentils, stir to coat with the melted butter, then add the broth. Simmer, covered, until the lentils are tender but not too mushy, approximately 20-30 minutes.
  3. The lentils will thicken as they cool down.
  4. Stir in the fresh ginger, lemon zest, lemon juice, salt and pepper to taste. Serve garnished with fresh cilantro and lemon wedges.
