Personal Notes:
Mama shared with me this recipe and it's a nice taste to remind of you how yummy lentejas can be! You can add more onion and more garlic as your tastes would like it but I'm not a big fan of a lot of onion so I also make sure I chop it all up to REALLY small pieces. Mama also mentioned she used to add milk to make this creamier or to omit the meat if you don't have any.
