Thanks Johnnae,
you are fast and good, as always.
hm...boiled and with vinegar... not too bad.. But butter I think would count as 
'animal fat' and thus a nono in this specific case...
I seem to recall chibols are onions?

snippingMissed this recipe. It was at the top of the search. It's not Northern  
This is an excerpt from An Anonymous Andalusian Cookbook
(Andalusia, 13th c. - Charles Perry, trans.)
The original source can be found at David Friedman's website

A Muzawwara (Vegetarian Dish) Beneficial for Tertian Fevers and Acute  
Fevers. Take boiled peeled lentils and wash in hot water several  
times; put in the pot and add water without covering them; cook and  
then throw in pieces of gourd, or the stems [ribs] of Swiss chard, or  
of lettuce and its tender sprigs, or the flesh of cucumber or melon,  
and vinegar, coriander seed, a little cumin, Chinese cinnamon, saffron  
and two ?qiyas of fresh oil; balance with a little salt and cook.  
Taste, and if its flavor is pleasingly balanced between sweet and  
sour, [good;] and if not, reinforce until it is equalized, according  
to taste, and leave it to lose its heat until it is cold and then serve.
