|The center back, where things went wrong terribly wrong the first time|
I apologize for the terrible photo, it's dark. And one of the cats tried to stand in the light.
I thought I'd share a super quick and easy "dinner". It's also a side dish if you have higher aspirations than me.
Easy Yummy Lentils
1 cup lentils
1 smallish onion, cut into 10-12 wedges
1/2 tsp salt
dash cayenne pepper, if desired
Pop the lentils and onion wedges into a small pot and just cover with water (approx 3 cups). Bring to a simmer and add the salt and cayenne. Cover and cook, still simmering, for 20 minutes until the lentils are cooked through but still firm. Serve hot or cold, seasoning to taste with more salt. We add some salt during cooking so the lentils aren't bland, but too much salt (i.e., enough) and legumes won't soften. One of those fun food chemistry facts :)
