      Title: Lentil & greens khoreshe
 Categories: Main dish, Vegetarian
      Yield: 4 Servings
 
      1 lg Onion; finely chopped
    1/3 c  Oil
      1 ts Turmeric
  2 1/2 c  Water
    1/4 c  Lemon or lime juice
           Salt
           Freshly ground black pepper
      8    Green onions; chopped
    1/2 lb Spinach leaves
           -- coarsely chopped
    1/4 lb Fresh parsley; chopped
      2 oz Fresh cilantro; chopped
      2 oz Tareh; chopped
           -OR chopped garlic chives
      1 c  Brown lentils; rinsed
 
  A 'khoreshe' is a sauce-like main dish, to be served with rice.
  'Tareh' resembles leeks, but much smaller, and has a garlic flavor.
  
  In a heavy pan, brown the onion in oil over medium heat, stirring
  frequently.  Add turmeric and fry for another minute or so. Add
  remaining ingredients, stir, and cover. Decrease heat to low and let
  simmer until lentils are tender, about 40 minutes.  Adjust seasonings
  if necessary and serve khoreshe with the best quality of rice you can
  obtain; basmati is what I recommend. Wholemeal flatbread is nice
  also, especially for dipping into the khoreshe.
  
  Variation: Substitute 1/2 pound of fresh or frozen fava beans for the
  lentils.  Decrease water to 1-1/2 cups.
