My husband objected to calling these “sloppy lentils” for some reason – he said it made them sound gross. Since they were most definitely not gross, he wants me to call them “lentil joes.” Sounds like a coffee shop to me. *shrug*
- I just cooked a whole pound of lentils and froze the remainder, but 1 cup dry = roughly 3 cups cooked.
- If you don’t have cooked lentils on hand already, soak them overnight with a tbsp or two of apple cider vinegar (reduces phytic acid) and cook them until tender the next day – give yourself an hour or two (the older they are, the longer they take to cook) before dinner needs to be served so you don’t run out of time.
- Need ideas for leftover lentils? Try a Lentil Loaf or Honey Baked Lentils.
