LENTIL CLARITY

Lentils are a great source of vegetable protein, but you need to prepare them right or they turn to mush. Here’s how. After rinsing 1 cup of lentils and picking out any debris, combine with 3 cups of water in a medium saucepan, and bring to a boil. Next, let them simmer for 20 to 30 minutes until they’re so³, but not disintegrating. Finally, strain them and add salt to taste. And enjoy!
