    I simmered some lentils for 45 minutes in a well seasoned chicken broth (bouillion) and I let them cool...

    They were great as is...

    Then I tossed in some of those Iberia canned mussels from the ethnic isle, (en escabeche)
    with their reddish, vinegarry, olive oily, liquid...
    I didn't use ALL of their liquid, I didn't want it soupy.

    Then I tossed in a little chopped cilantro and some minced onion...

    I did that last night, and I just tasted it... Wowwy wow wow!

    GREAT cold or room temp salady thing!

    And very healthy too...
    We should eat more lentils...

    Lentil soup with a chicken broth base and some onion and other veggies is a great winter dish for me, but my wife does not care for it (or mussels). I'll have to try the combo next time she is out of town and I am fending for myself.

    God guy's, don't tempt me. I've been on Atkins for 6weeks, and have
    no Idea of how that fitts in.

    I'm not an Atkins person, but lentils are like beans. I think the carb factor is somewhat balanced by the fiber factor, but I'm sure the Atkins adherents will correct me if I'm the slightest wrong. They are like religious zealots. Atkins 3:74 says: "Thou shall not eat ....... "

    Just kidding (normal) Atkins folks, but you know there are people like that.

    That's why I went with the South Beach diet, lean meats and low carb instead of NO carbs!!!! I have been on it now for 11 days, Wednesday starts phase 2!!! ;+
