Try Indian Lentils With Coconut for a dish that is big on flavor but not on calories. Serve as a tasty side dish at any meal.
Heat olive oil in a large saucepan over medium-high heat. Add chopped onion; sauté 5 minutes or until just beginning to brown. Stir in the water, lentils, coconut milk, and bay leaf. Bring to a boil over medium-high heat; reduce heat to low. Simmer, stirring occasionally, 40 minutes or until the lentils are soft.
Remove and discard the bay leaf. Then stir in salt and pepper.
