I wanted to give a little update on the new to me lentils I found last week in the bulk bins at Whole Foods. They are golden zero tannin lentils. They remind me of red lentils. They cook in like fifteen minutes, and they definitely lose their shape like red lentils, which means they are great for soups! I would say cook them for ten to twelve minutes if you wanted them to be firm for a salad or something solid. And, they really don't "muddy the water"! After shopping at Whole Foods a few times, I have a new understanding of them. You have to treat Whole Foods like Grocery Outlet. You can't go there for all of your groceries, (unless you can) but you can go there and find some good deals. They have had good deals on certain organic produce both times I've been there, and there have been some decent sales on other specialty items. It feels good to lose some of that loathing!
Happy Monday! It's the last Monday of 2015!
