Lentil Cookbook?



Recommended Posts

So, I'm 10 months out and still having problems eating solid foods (doc knows, nothing they can do). Since this appears to be my life, I need to get out of the rut of only eating yogurt for Breakfast and dinner. Lentils seem like they go down fine. We have a meal delivery service here that is run by immigrants/refugees and I have been able to get all sorts of delicious Middle Eastern, Indian, and African (lots of stuff from Eritrea and Ethiopia)-style lentils from that. But those have a lot of salt and oil, so I'd love to be able to replicate them by cooking at home. Does anyone know of a good lentil cookbook that has a lot of different styles of cooking? Thanks!

I 💜 lentils...

But a Lentil only cool book... Hmmmm thats super specific so try Google

Also can you branch out to other legumes as well (so you dont get stuck in a rut)?

All legumes/beans can be cooked very very tender and mashed blended into stew/soup? You can even add unflavored Protein Powder, yogurt, cheese or cottage cheese as a topping.

Good Luck and share if you find something 💜

I have problems digesting Beans and lentils. I have soaked them, rinsed them, and cooked them with kombu, skimmed the foam and done everything I have heard of to help, but still get gas from anything other than a very small amount of beans, lentils, hummus etc...
I have often cooked with fennel, but in smaller amounts than this recipe called for.
I made Lentil and Mushroom Tagine from the Whole Foods Market Cookbook. I did not follow the recipe exactly - I usually never follow recipes exactly - but it called for 2 cups of lentils and 2 teaspoons of fennel seeds. I did soak the lentils overnight because I had to be at work at 6 am so I cut up the veggies and put them with the seasoning and some Water and the rinsed lentils in the fridge for dh to just put in the crockpot in the morning along with the veggie broth and can of tomatoes.
I have a mortar and pestle got it cheap at Ross a few months ago and I love it so I crushed the fennel some and that soaked overnight with it.
The lentil stew or tagine whatever that means was fantastic - and I had no tummy trouble.
I thought it was a lot of fennel to use and you could definitely taste the fennel, but it was yummy and easy on the tummy.
Just though I would share that in case other people may want to try it.
