3 Lentil Recipes for Pantry Preparedness



Stocked pantry? Check. Stocked fridge and freezer? Check. Now what?

Most people have stockpiled enough food necessary to make it through the 14 day shutdowns ordered in many areas. Cooking at first will be easy - you’ll make relatively the same things you do on a “normal” day. But what about day 10 and beyond?

That’s when creativity and a bit of knowledge come into play. I cannot stress this enough…if you know how food ‘works’ you can make anything. If you understand how aromas and flavors and textures come together you can create a crowd-pleasing meal out of very little.

Let me explain.

Take plain white rice, for example. Plain rice is well…plain. Flavorless. Boring. But add some salt and umami in the form of Furikake…and POW! Deliciousness. Something as simple as shaking some seaweed flakes and toasted sesame seeds takes boring to wow in no time at all.
