Serves 4-6


Ingredients:

Large Eggplant, 1

Green Peppers, 3

Medium Size Potato, 3

Tomato, 4

Large Onion, 1

Tomato paste, 2 tablespoon

Lentils, 1/4 cup uncooked

Egg noodles, 12 oz (regular or eggwhite)

Salt, Pepper, Paprika, oregano


Peel the eggplants, potatoes, and the Onion. Cut the eggplants into long strips and the potatoes into squares. In a large pot, pour 3 cups of water, and lentils. On high heat cook lentils for 3 minutes before adding the potato squares, salt, pepper, paprika, and olive oil. Next, add chopped onions, and eggplant strips. Finally, slice tomatoes and add to the mix. Mix 2 tablespoons of tomato paste in 1/2 cup of water, and add to the vegetables. Cooking should continue until the potatoes are cooked. Finally, add some oregano.

Boil the egg noodles in water, salt, and some olive oil. The egg noodles cook very fast, so don't boil for too long.

Serve the vegetables on a bed of egg noodle.
