In a medium pot with a lid put all the ingredients with enough oil to cover the bottom of the pot. Add the sauce, let it simmer until you see steam coming out from the lid of the pot. Keep stirring so as not to burn it.
Once you see the steam you add enough water until it's at least 5cm from the rim of the pot. Stir in the salt, pepper and parsley. Replace the lid, turn the heat to low and cook for an hour.
Cook the rice in your preferred way and, when cooked, add it to the lentils and then dish it up into soup plates (or bowls) this will serve at least 4 to 5 people.
