I use my rice cooker (small inexpensive one) to cook dried lentils or lentils and brown rice. I put 1 cup lentils, 1 cup brown rice & herbs/spices + 3 cups of water and they cooked up super yummy. Can't get much cheaper either! Love it :)
Stay strong and be blessed!
No, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him who loved us. Romans 8:37
Dried and canned legumes are great for saving big bucks on your grocery bill, are packed full of nutrients/fiber and are a a great substitute for meat. However, many people avoid cooking with them simply because they either don't know HOW or are unfamiliar with the many ways legumes/pulses can be used.
I started this thread in hopes of collecting together some of your favorite tried and true legume/pulse recipes.
