Lentil and Vegetable
Wash and cull the
lentils, as they are a raw product...we use organic and culled
ones, but if you cannot find this type of lentil, please check
them and remove any small pebbles, etc. Place the lentils in a
saucepan and cover with two inches of water. Bring to a boil and
then simmer covered for 20 to 25 minutes, until tender yet still
firm. This is why the petite French lentils work so well. Drain
any excess water and chill. Orzo should be treated the same as
other pastas, they just cook faster as they are smaller. The orzo
should be added to boiling, salted water for about 10 minutes
and then drained. Sprinkle a few drops of oil over the cooked
orzo and mix, then chill. Combine the orzo with the lentils in
a large mixing bowl. Add the spices, vinegar, and vegetables.
Mix well and chill.
