I don't want to lose the time invested in cooking lentils from dry. I've a big batch of lentils, two days old and not much cooking liquid remaining...but Jonah and I are under the weather and I know we won't, as a family, eat very much of it.

Can I just throw them in a ziplock and freeze flat/ish? How long will they keep?


Peace

Yes, you can. They can be pretty mushy when you thaw. Thaw completely first before heating them up to avoid the most mush.

I'd guess about six months in the freezer.

Hmmm..I wonder if the mush would be too yuk, texture wise. If I pureed the defrosted lentils, do you think they could successfully be stirred into a soup of some sort?

Sure, just use it as a base for a thicker broth.

We have a soup recipe that I purposely cook long enough so the (red) lentils turn to mush. That's what makes it so good; it's a lovely, velvety texture.


Blessings,
