To cook bagged legumes:
Buy any bagged legume that you like
Measure out 2 cups into a pot of water and let soak for 12 hours.
Into a colander drain and refill the pot with fresh water and legumes you just soaked.
Boil for 15 mins and test. I like my legumes al dente. They are done at 15 mins. If you like them softer keep cooking.
Once done remove from heat
Drain into a colander and rinse with cold water to stop the cooking.
Let cool and drain for an hour.
I like to take dishrags and spread the lentils onto the dishrag to pat dry before I put them into the refrigerator.
I eat them daily so mine do not go bad. You can keep for 6 days before the get funky.
