Lentils would have to be one of the most ancient of cultivated food sources. They are super affordable, and a good source of protein, fibre and many trace minerals. Lentils are actually seeds, therefore they can also be sprouted , which can unleash their nutrient content and chi / pranic energy, as sprouting of all edible seeds does.. But most commonly they are used to make Dahl, an Indian dish of spiced, cooked lentils. You can try making your own variations of it by adding your herbs and spices of choice. To get started simply rinse your lentils (they don't need pre-soaking because of their small size). Then add 1 cup of lentils to approximately 3 cups of boiling water in a pot and simmer with the lid on for about 45 minutes to 1 hour.
A few ideas for flavour additions to your cooking lentils could be: cayenne, turmeric, salt/tamari, pepper, garlic, ginger, cumin, coriander, onions, tomatoes, coconut cream/milk, all of which add extra nutritive value to your Dahl
