2 cloves garlic
6oz lentils

1.5 pts chicken/veg stock

melt butter
soften onions & garlic
add tomatoes & mash a bit with wooden spoon
add stock
add lentils & stir
add worc sauce if using
bring to boil then simmer till lentils are mushy (20/30 mins)

Mine is maybe a bit more complicated/spicy than you want but what I do is:

Fry onion and diced carrots; other vege if wanted or have got to use up (cauliflower is nice)
Add spices - cumin seeds, mustard seeds, turmeric, chilli, loads of black pepper
Add tub of passata, tin of coconut milk, water, red lentils
Add lemon juice and handful of frozen peas, cook some more
