Lentils: A Poem/Advertisement
by Aisha Ahmad (written January 2009)
Do not be afraid of the humble lentil!
It is your friend!
Lentils take a long time to cook:
This is because they are delicious
and it takes work to achieve nice things.
Here is how I like lentils:
Spicy lentils with rice,
Spicy lentils with yogurt and apples,
Spicy lentils with tomato paste and onions.
These are ancient lentil-eating methods learned from my dear, smart, wise mother.
Lentil bless you all and keep you.
