The idea came from this page. Turned out fine, a little overcooked. I'm surprised at how enjoyable the lentils were though. As a side note, does anyone else enjoy reading the Wikipedia articles on the ingredients they're using while they're waiting on things to cook? That has to be part of my top five use cases for my iPod (among other things: remembering office hours, reading HN, and playing Katamari). Interesting tidbit: Lentils and rice make a complete protein dish.
