I just had black lentils for the first time at Woodward and they were so delicious I was blown away and now I'd love to make them at home. I went to Whole Foods but didn't find them. Where have you found black lentils in Boston?
Yes, you can make Indian cuisine at home. Here, red lentils, carrots, and potatoes simmer with warm spices and vegetable broth until tender.
Easy Lentil Soup
This easy lentil soup is healthy, filling, and delicious. It happens to be vegetarian, too, and is packed not only with tender yet toothsome lentils, but carrot, celery, onion, spinach, and tomato. A little bay leaf, fresh thyme, and a splash of red wine or sherry vinegar perks everything up. Perfect with a loaf of good, crusty bread!

Summer is in full swing, which (hopefully) means trips to the park or the beach. If you’re taking a picnic along, you should know a few food safety rules so you can pack, transport, and eat your meal without the threat of food poisoning. Liz Weinandy
