Tip:
Cook lentils and beans in larger batches and freeze 2 cup portions of cooked lentils / beans for convenient future use.
Or simply make multiple meals including lentils like lentil soup, dip or other rice and lentil dishes within 2 days with the extra lentils.
Keep extra lentils in the fridge for up to two days or several weeks in your freezer in portion size containers.

  3. Using 2 cups of fresh water with the soaked lentils, add one dash of salt. Bring lentils to boil (covered). Reduce heat and simmer for about 20 minutes. The longer the lentils were soaked prior cooking, the shorter the cooking time. Check lentils regularly, add more water if needed.

    The wife was soaking some lentils to make some soup and i decided to make this salad instead. 🙂
    ok i got in a little bit of trouble with the wife, but she loved this salad.
