1. Wash the lentils and put them in a deep pot. Add the garlic, onion, and bay leaves. Add enough water to cover the lentils by about 1 inch (2.5 cm) and bring to a boil. Reduce the heat to low and simmer for 1 hour, or until the lentils are done.
2. Season with the salt and pepper, drizzle some good-quality olive oil on top, and serve hot.
