>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.

>>784 I think that French lentils are best. They retain shape when cooked, and have a pleasant peppery, earthy flavor. When pandemic was starting, everyone was going for rice and pasta, but lentils were almost untouched, despite keeping just as well and being far more nutritious. I stacked up on them and have been slowly making my way through the excess. Usually I cook up a batch and eat them over few days. When cooking I add mirepoix, garlic, bay leaves, thyme, salt, and pepper. If I happen to have some homemade stock or bouillon cube I add it too. My go to uses are: >Bowl of lentils topped with herbs or fresh green vegetables >As a side for meat instead of starches like potatoes or rice >To thicken and enrich stews, good to add protein and more flavor to a "vegan chilli" for example >Cold in salads >Cooked until they turn into a creamy soup My go to recipe is a lentil salad. All you need are pre-cooked lentils, carrots, celery, onion, mustard, olive oil, and lemon. All of these ingredients keep well and most people have them on hand. I use one cup of vegetables per two cups of lentils. Fresh herbs are very good to top the salad; parsley or chives work best in my opinion, but scallions work well too. For fat, goat cheese is my favorite here, but fresh mozzarella, avocado, or even an extra potion of olive oil will work well too. Recipe is simple: >Dice carrots, celery, onion. You can saute them a bit, but that's optional. >Mix vegetables in a bowl with precooked lentils. >Mix in a table spoon of mustard and a tablespoon of olive oil >Add lemon juice, salt, and pepper to taste, mix it >Add portion of herbs and fat of your choice, mix it >Top with remaining herbs and serve As most salads, this can be easily customized. It's pretty easy to come up with your own versions.
>>784 Roast some cut down carrots, put the lentils in, with water, you may add add some laurel leafs, let it cook at some decent heat. While waiting roast some onion in a pan, add some flour when then onions are already dark, wait till the flour is golden or brown and add this to the lentils. Of course stir it from time to time so it wont glue on the ground, scratch a bit around there. Put some salt and black pepper in, maybe a bit Muscat powder. You may experiment with some additional spices, a bit chilly is also nice. Also add some sausages (e.g. German hotdog like "Saitenw├╝rste"), maybe cut them in a little, let it boil on low heat for a while. The sausages need to exchange some flavor with the rest but don't really need to be cooked so add them rather late. Tomato sauce makes it a bit fruity, that's the more Italian than (South)-German variant, in that case you don't need the rosted flour above, and it may fit better without the sausages. I sometimes also added other vegetables, especially green or red pepper. Also need some pasta. For the fully German variant it would be pasta with eggs and rather mushy instead al dente. But works with other pasta as well. Mix it on the plate and add some vinegar (also for better digestion). You can of course also cook it with some meat that may be smoked or already cooked, amd it needs to gets soft when cooked so you won't end up with the something like rubber. Or replace the pasta with potatoes.
