October Food Challenge: Lentils

It’s been a while since I’ve done a Food Challenge on the blog. Remember those? Last one was March, when I made polenta for the first time.
I was gazing into my pantry this morning, and a big bag of lentils caught my eye. It’s been there for months. In fact, I can’t even remember where they came from – surely I didn’t buy them, considering I’ve never cooked with them before.
Yup, that’s right – I’ve never cooked with lentils, which means they’re a prime target for a Food Challenge.
I love eating lentils in soup that other people make, but my family? They’re not big soup eaters – except for Cheesy Potato Soup, which is super addictive, and easy to make.
But back to lentils. Aside from soup, I’m not sure I know of a great way to cook with them. Is soup the best option? If so, I may have to have a lentil soup party and not invite my family. Hmmmm….
Here’s where you come in. I want you to tell me your favorite way to cook lentils! Here’s what I have to work with:
You can leave me a note below with your suggestions, or you can comment on the Facebook page or send me a tweet! In about a week I’ll compile all the choices into a Facebook poll, and voting will commence. I’ll look to make my lentil concoction by the end of October.
Thank you for participating!

    Lentil burgers IS a great idea. Dal is a great Indian dish with lentils. Or you could do a lentil salad of some kind. I will have to come over for this challenge. Obviously.
