cooking lentils separately + adding celery first to a soffritto

pecandanish | Apr 9, 200801:29 AM

two questions really rather than topics.

firstly, as i am a one pot wonder i always chuck my lentils in with other ingredients and then add stock / water and cook them in situ. many recipes advise cooking lentils separately in water or stock AND then adding to your final dish.

i dont really see why i should cook them separately.

also whenever i see recipes calling for a soffritto - celery, carrot, onion, garlic the onion seems to be added first but surely its celery then carrot then onion and finally garlic as thats the order in which they soften.
