I guess with fall around the corner and a quest for flavor on the mind it pushed us to explore what was possible. These lentils are soaked in coconut water for 24 hours. Once they are hydrated they cook in under thirty minutes on the stove. They become super plump with a brief pop followed by a tender interior. The process of hydrating the lentil is one we have done with beans (of course) and nuts (works brilliantly) and rice (6 minute risotto) so it is a wonder why it took so long to try with lentils.
