Of course it needed some tweaking.
My portion is all ready to be taken to work for lunch.
1 cup lentils
3 roma tomatoes
3 cloves of garlic
1-2 tsp ginger
dash of paprika
Boil 2 cups of water and add the lentils. Turn down to a simmer. Cook until the lentils have absorbed the water and are soft.
Add a 1/3 cup of water, the diced tomatoes, peeled and smashed garlic, olive oil and spices. Allow the mix to simmer until the tomatoes are tender.
Puree half of the mix (with an immersion blender) and stir everything together. Taste and adjust seasonings.
Note: this could be served over rice.
