As in lentils for baby to eat. She gobbled them up. So did I. I just purchased a slow cooker and need to catalog my experiences so that I can repeat successes. I originally got into lentils when making Lentil Burgers for my son a few years ago. They were a huge hit, but also a huge effort. While W does like her finger food, she’s also still amenable to the spooned stuff so I thought I’d try a soupy version and adapt if it got rejected. No need! Enjoy.
I really need to add to my crockpot/slow cooker repertoire so send me your recipes if you have good ones. Thanks!
