Let simmer for about 1 and half hours. ( I found you needed to add water but by guessing and then watching to see it does not burn and untill soft, but not too much water each time, start with recipe amount and then add little at time}

Add the garlic, bay lead, 2 and half pints of water, some salt and the lentils.. Simmer this also about 1 and half hours. When lentils are tender drain and rinse them, keeping the two kinds separate untill cool.
  4. Then mix together add 2 tablespoons of live oil, the vinegar and lemon juice. salt and pepper to taste and set aside over night.
