I've got a bunch of things hanging about in the fridge and have decided to make a soup that will include lentils. I want the lentils to remains firm'ish and I'm not going to puree any of it. I was wondering if I should cook the lentils first and then add them to the soup at the end. It seems to me that this is the best way to go for the result I'm looking for. Yes? TIA.
