Organic red lentils should be a staple food in your cupboard. Especially if you are cooking for your baby, red lentils are a perfect source for protein, potassium, phosphorus and iron (6.7mg per 100g compared to 2.3mg beef, 1.8mg pork or 1.4mg chicken).
Cook together with millet or quinoa in vegetable stock or water with dried herbs - an easy and quick way of preparing your baby's lunch to take along to the childminder. Makes a nutritious salad with other grains and fresh vegetables.

Suitable for vegetarians and vegans.
Keep in a cool dry place out of direct sunlight. Once opened store in an airtight container. No pre-soaking needed. Rinse well, add plenty of cold water and bring to the boil. Reduce heat and simmer for 15 minutes or until tender, drain and add to your favourite recipe.

Very good

Since I make dal at least once a week, I have tried all sorts of different brands, and these ones are the beet insofar. This is how I cook them:

- put half of a packet of lentils in a pot and add twice the amount of water, adding more if neccessary later on. Bring to boil.
- add a pinch of chili powder, half a teaspoon of turmeric (alternatively a fresh chili and fresh grated turmeric)

Now you will need a small frying pan and oil to prepare the rest.

- chop an onion, fry and add to the lentils
- grate one inch of ginger and one clove of garlic, fry for a few seconds and add to the lentils
- fry spices for a few seconds and add to the lentils. I use one teaspoon of cumin, three cloves, two green cardamom and half a teaspoon of ajowan.

After 15 minutes the dal will be ready. Serve with rice/bread, yoghurt and vegetables.
