Rice with red lentils, artichokes and sun-dried tomatoes

30 ml (2 tbsp.) olive oil
5 big red tomatoes chopped
2 smal onions chopped
1 yellow pepper chopped
5  garlic cloves crushed
5 ml (1 tsp.) ground cumin
10 ml (2 tbsp.) oregano
1 bay leaf
salt and pepper

Heat the oil in a frying pan. Sauté all vegetables 5 minutes. Add garlic, cumin, oregano and bay leaf. Continue cooking about 15 minutes. Taste and add salt and pepper to taste.

4 garlic cloves peled
pinch of salt
5 ml (1 tsp.) lemon juice
olive oil

In a mortar, place the garlic with the salt. Using a pestle, smash the garlic until it forms a smooth paste. Add lemon juice to the garlic and mix. Drop by drop; pour the olive oil into the mortar slowly as you continue to crush the paste with your pestle. Keep adding the oil, drop by drop, until you have the consistency of a very thick mayonnaise. This takes time - around 20 minutes of slow motion.
