I found this video pretty hysterical. I love the comments they make!
The last time I made lentils I boiled them with Montreal Steak Seasoning in the water. About a tablespoon for a cup of lentils. My Mom had handed the spice down to me. Goodness knows how old it is. If you like the idea I recommend that you use a little less if your spice is newer and more pungent. I really liked how it flavored the lentils and plan to do it again real soon. It was nice to have that jar of lentils to pull from to make her something quick or even to make myself something quick and nutritious.
