I'm afraid of lentils - help me cook with them?

I have no experience cooking with lentils and very little with consuming them. What do I need to know - what are your favorite recipes?

    I love a lentil stew, cooked up with carrots and onions and potatoes and herbs and spices, served over rice. Maybe with some grated parmesan cheese on top.

    A complete protein when you serve lentils with rice.

    You have to face your fear. Trust me, if you don't, someday, you will look back on your life and deeply regret it. I want you to look that lentil in the face and tell it that you're the boss. it doesn't have power over you anymore. the first few time, maybe bring a cooking knife just in case
