Chef & Child Ingredient of the Month, March 2011


¾ cup dry USA lentils
2 cups water


Rinse lentils; drain. Bring dry lentils to a boil.

Cover; simmer 30 minutes. (The longer they cook the softer they become.) Stir frequently. Cool slightly; do not drain. Purée in blender or food processor until reaches consistency of canned pumpkin. Add water to thin, if needed. (Excess purée can be frozen for future use.)
