MC formatting by bobbi744@sojourn.com NOTES : Lentils Information and Other Uses: Lentils cook quickly, with no presoaking. They are wonderful cooked and dressed with mustard vinaigrette for an easy salad. Wrap cooked lentils and grated cheese in flour tortillas for quick vegetarian main course. Substitute cooked lentils for beans nexttime you make meatless chili. Recipe by: Family Circle Magazine, 2-1-98, p. 106 Posted to MC-Recipe Digest by Roberta Banghart on Mar 10, 1998
