Food on Friday: Lentils & dried pulses

 
ON


I really need help with how to use Lentils and other dried pulses.  About the only way I use them is in hearty winter soups.
To add your dishes to the collection, please put the name of the dish (plus your name/blog name if you like) into the first Mr Linky box and then paste the url for your post about it into the second one.
I know Mr Linky is a bit clunky but I'm sticking with it for sentimental reasons.  To help you see the dishes at a glance I'll be pinning them all to this Pinboard.

  1. As someone who is trying to be healthier and lose weight, I love this topic! Lentils are incredibly healthy and seriously underrated by almost everyone I know. Good going!

  3. I call it shepherd's pie whether I make it with ground beef or ground turkey (I never make it with lamb), but when I make it vegetarian with lentils, I call it shepherdless pie!

  7. Hi, Carole, Baked Chicken with Curried Fruit and Lentils (Middle Eastern Style) #13 is a really easy dish. Don't have lentils? Rice will do, too, but I hope this will inspire people to try lentils.

  11. Ottolenghi's Green Lentils, Asparagus and Watercress salad was very well-received at a party I attended. Chunks of Manchego cheese in it were perfect!
