    1. Bring water to the boil in a pot. Stir lentils into water; reduce heat to low and simmer, stirring occasionally, until the water is mostly absorbed, 25 to 25 minutes. Stir onion, garlic, paprika, bay leaf, cumin, salt and pepper into the lentils; continue cooking until the water is fully absorbed and the lentils are tender, 5 to 10 minutes more. Stir olive oil into the lentils. Remove and discard the bay leaf.
