I am a big lentil lover, and so are my three children. Beans and lentils are the one food we all eat. Here is the recipe from my mother’s housekeeper of over twenty years. The lentils are prepared with a very tasty guiso sauce, which gives the soft flavored lentils a hearty flavor and a thick, brown, velvety sauce. In other parts of the country such as Nariño, they are prepared with ¼-inch cubed potatoes, and still served with rice and plantains.
