Lentils


Portion: Approx. 1/2 cup per serving


How to prepare

  1. For grains such as lentils, use 1 1/2–2 times the recommended amount of water for cooking until soft and creamy.

  2. Drain and place into blender or food processor

  3. Start at a low speed and gradually increase to a higher speed to prevent the product from immediately splattering to the sides of the container.

  4. Regularly stop, check, stir, scrape the product with a spatula or spoon to the centre of the container so that the blades will make optimal contact to process the product.

  5. Mince cooked lentils with hot broth and margarine until smooth in texture.

  6. Add ThickenUp® Clear. Process briefly until mixed, scraping sides of bowl.

  7. Heat covered tightly with aluminum foil to 165°F (74°C). Serve.
