Paris, here's how to make a good pot of lentils.....
all you need is a bag of lentils
chicken broth or bouillon
boil 8 cups of water to 1 bag lentils. 1 lb bag
when boiling add lentils, turn heat down
add chicken broth/bouillon or granules to taste.
cook lentils until tender. can vary. just after 10 min..keep testing.
when done, add to rice. brown rice is better but more expensive. Lentils are a good source of fiber and protein. If you make a lot ahead of time, it cuts down on your cooking time for your busy week. Lentils are kind of chewy when cooked "al dente".
