Sweet Lentil Stew

I was surprised when I found a lentil recipe from Kokbok. I had no idea, that lentils were available in Finnish stores in 1920’s. We had the Lentil Stew with boiled potatoes, radish relish and salad.

Lentil Stew

200 g lentils
1-2 l water
2 tbsp sugar
3 tbsp margarine (or oil)
1,5 tbsp wheat flour
1 tbsp salt (or to taste)
1 tsp distilled vinegar (optional)

Rinse the lentils and put them in a pot with sugar and 1l cold water. Bring to boil and simmer until lentils are tender, add more water if needed. Stir in margarine. Mix the flour with small amount of cold water and pour to the pot. Simmer 10 minutes, season with salt (and distilled vinegar) and serve.
