today I'm trying something uncommon for me, red lentils. 1.5 cups in 6 cups of water, 12 minutes on the microwave in my vacuum container; then covered, vacuumed out the air, and wrapped in my down vest. plan to leave it alone most of the day, checking occasionally. sure I'll have to reheat it at some point. also added salt, pepper, cumin, chopped shallots, lard, and some castor oil to reduce flatulence. I didn't drain after soaking because that has never helped in the past for me anyway. I maybe soaked for two hours before cooking.
