    All the obvious stuff about curries and such aside, when I was a really young and poor one I'd use red lentils a thickener in stews and sauces. Pretty much boil them into a paste and add as needed.
    I sometimes like to throw a small handful of green lentils in with the rice when I cook a pot of that just to add some variety.
    If you have leftover cooked lentils you can also add them to dough when baking bread.

      in a pot fry a chopped onion in butter
      add some fresh green chilis and 3 or so tbsp of garlic ginger paste or finely chopped and grated garlic and ginger and saute a little longer
      then add tomato paste or a tomato grated thru a box shredder and a good amount of any decent masala, garam is fine but something with more color is best (ie: more tumeric or chili powder)
      add any variety of lentils and water, cook until lentils are done

    Turkish Lentil soup:

    Heat 1/4 cup butter and fry 1 small onion until golden.
    Add 3 cloves of garlic, 2 Tbs tomato paste, 1 cup red lentils and 1 peeled, diced medium potato. Fry until lentils are slightly toasted.
    Add one quart of chicken stock.
    Simmer until everything is soft, then spice with 1 Tbs paprika, 1 tsp dried mint, 1/2 tsp black pepper.
    Optionally add a pinch of any Turkish spices like cumin, coriander, cinnamon, saffron, etc.
    Blend smooth with an immersion blender, and salt to taste.
    Serve with a slice of lemon.

    I also like to make this fresh Turkish flatbread to go with this soup that uses a tube of Pillsbury pizza crust (pic related).
    Roll it out onto a baking tray, dimple the top with fingers, and drizzle it with olive oil.
    Sprinkle it all over with sesame, poppy, cumin and nigella seeds, flaky salt, and black pepper.

      but why use pizza dough when the dough is very easy to make yourself?

      Came here to post this. The name is mercimek corbasi. The mint sounds weird but it really works if you add just enough.

    Last Christmas I made a vegetarian version of a canadian tourtiere for my sister in law who's a vegetarian. I stead of the ground beef I used finely ground, sauted mushrooms and lentils and it turned out pretty good.

    Cut up onions anywhich way you want. Carmalize them while you do other stuff. Adding salt and some oil is OK but not necessary.

    Ground beef goes in cold pan. Slowly heat to seperate water and fat then char beef. Remove beef. Add rice to beef fat and give them color like for pilaf. Remove rice and add chopped peppers and cinnamon stick with some olive oil to activate them. Remove peppers/stick.

    Cook rice Chinese style via par boil then steam. Cook lentils normally. Once both are ready your onions should be too for next step.

    In the pan with olive oil and beef fat, increase heat until smoke point. Add onions and char them while adding spices, cinnamon stick, and peppers. Once charred remove from heat and throw out cinnamon stick and add in rice, lentils, beef. Mix then out on low for 15min so it all melds.

    Deglaze as you see fit. Keep in mind you want the carbon materials in the dish.

    Serve with flatbread/tortillas and some tzatziki sauce I don't recall the name of. I do sour cream, Cilantro, like juice, salt, pepper, raw grated onion/garlic.
