Lentil Thread

>25% brotein >cheap as a used up crackwhore >last forever These things should be more popular. Anybody got some good recipes for them? While I can't remember the details my housemate once made this old european peasant dish where she cooked them in stock with smokey bacon, onions and carrots and served it with sausages. It was pretty great. I half replicated it but with parsnips and chicken liver instead of carrots and sausages and it turned out alright.

Post tea. Here's the /tea/ pastebin from cu/ck/, which I haven't read:

My tea:
Cold-brewed loose high mountain oolong. On hand, I also have these, all loose: gunpowder tea, pearl tea, tie guan yin, ceremonial matcha, lapsang souchong, Earl Grey, and Lipton for the occasional masala chai or Thai tea.

My gear:
Cheap borosilicate teapot with a tiny filter from an Asian market tucked into the spout
Bone china English-style service with silver flatware, with matching teapot used as a justice pot for kung fu
A dank black teacup and saucer from Occupied Japan that I inherited
Krups blade grinder (for tea masala)
AeroLatte milk frother (for matcha)

I'm looking to get a kung fu tea tray in black with silver-tone accents.

Uncommon Ingredients

Useful ingredients that aren't rare, but aren't in a typical (American/Western European) kitchen. MSG makes any meat dish (and some other stuff) way better. Liquid smoke is a very powerful flavor that can give new life to a dish. Nipponese shoyu folded ten thousand times has a tastier, deeper, and more complex flavor than inferior Chinese soy sauce common in the west. Sodium citrate makes it really easy to melt cheese without it becoming a pile of grease. For a lot of applications though, it's a lot easier to steam the cheese into melting (which is a vastly under-known technique).

Cooking booze

Anyone know if Aldi's 3 buck Winking Owl is good enough for cooking?

Other two are what I was recommended by someone I know for cooking a pair of dishes. Needed a very dry white (which winking owl doesn't seem to cover) for capellini and needed brut champagne for a plum sauce.

Weird flours

HI everybody! I thought that opening a new thread about the weirdest kinds of flour you can get could be useful. I often see interesting things but I actually don't know how to use them. That pisses me off. Sooo, I'll start. Have you guys ever heard of amaranth? I got a pack of amaranth flour from a friend of mine, but I have no clue how to use it. Any tips? I am not SoleNero, I'm just reposting this so I can delete it from the coffee thread.

Lads I'm trying my hand at making stew, but don't have any wine or stock to use. Wat do?

R: 25 / I: 3 / P: 3


I'm trying to make a roux for the first time for Gumbo and I have no idea what the right point is to take the roux off the heat.
I think the first batch I made is burnt. It was looking fine at first, but once I took it off the heat it kept darkening for a bit and now it's seriously dark beyond chocolate color.
I think I also used a bit too much oil. There's a little layer of oil on top of it now with the "roux" under it.

So yeah, I'm going to try again tomorrow and figured I ask here how do I not fuck it up? Just take it off the heat earlier and just have it be lighter in color?

/ck/ misconceptions

Common /ck/ misconceptions. I'll start with two that bother me now I'm in America:
>Italians are obsessed with garlic
Partly true but authentic Italian food actually makes much more use of parsley.
>oregano is a standard Italian herb that goes in everything
Outside of Sicily and the far south of Italy it's almost entirely relegated to pizza and a few other select dishes. Particularly in the USA this misconception is because most Italian-Americans were from Sicily and also some influence from WW2.
