Susan, thanks so much for sharing the video and the link to 'Mom-a-licious' with us.

Quinoa is something i have wanted to try and now i want to even more.

Prior to watching this, i had never heard of Kiefer; sounds like it would be a tasty addition to a healthy diet.

I love lentils. A friend introduced me to them in college. She cooked them in chicken broth with some chopped onion and garlic until they were barely tender but not mushy. she combined them with cooked rice and used that as a filling for stuffed bell peppers. she covered them with a jar of good spaghetti sauce and baked till they were heated through, then topped them with mozzerella cheese and put them back into the oven till the cheese was bubbly. they were great!!

Meredith -- Wow! what an amazing spirit that young lady has!! She is inspiring.

I love lentils also. I like my lentil soup-Wendish style.

1 lbs. lentils
1 ham bone, or i cup diced ham
1 large onion
1/2 cup diced celery
1-1/2 cups diced potatoes
1 cup diced carrots
salt to taste

Soak lentils overnight. Drain. Place lentils, ham bone, onions and celery in a kettle. Cover with water and bring to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer 1 hour. Add potatoes and carrots. Continue cooking 30 minutes to 45 minutes until done. When serving, add vinegar to taste, if desired.

Meredith is a great young lady. I also taught her older sister, Karen.

Anyway, what attracted me was the quinoa. I have read of this when I studied the Precolumbian Exchange.

Neat video

Unfortunately, this video is in Spanish, but I liked the images of the plant upclose

I just saw Rachael Ray cook a meal with lentils the other day. She cooked the lentils with an onion that had not been chopped up, just in there for flavoring. She put several cloves of garlic through a press into olive oil and let that sit. When the lentils were cooked, but not too soft, she mixed them with the flavored olive oil. Then she served that as a bed to italian sausages that she had cooked in water and a little olive oil. She cooks sausages like that so they get cooked through and then the water evaporates and the oil crisps up the sausage casings. It sounded wonderful and I think I'm going to give it a try.

Thanks for the link and info!
