In a medium bowl, mix the water, soy sauce, brown sugar, garlic powder, ginger, and toasted sesame oil.
In a medium pot, heat the canola oil over medium-high heat. Add the onion and cook for about 5 minutes until the onion softens and starts to brown.
Next, add the lentils and stir to coat the lentils in the onion loveliness.
Then add in the sauce that you mixed together in your bowl. Stir to combine the sauce with the lentils and onions.
Cover the pot and cook at a low boil for about 10 minutes. After this time, the lentils will be soft and the sauce will be mostly gone.
Serve the sumptuous Korean lentils hot in a bowl with cooked rice or any vegetables you like. Enjoy this bowl of love and know that you already have everything you need. ❤️
