Ideas for using lentil cooking liquid

Recommended Posts

Tonight for dinner I'm making the lentil salad from Modernist Cuisine: as a byproduct of cooking the lentils sous vide with a massive sachet of vegetables, I have about 500mL of absolutely delicious cooking liquid leftover. I was wondering if anyone has any ideas for what to do with this lentil stock, it's too delicious to throw out.

If you have the time, how 'bout small, lentil sized spheres of lentil cooking liquid to be mixed in with the lentils?

Use it to cook rice

I second that and if it was me, I'd sneak a little rich coconut milk in there. Also envision it as part of the liquid in making some dirty rice.

Here's how I used the first half:

Just cooked the rice is the liquid, then added sautéed carrots and asparagus, plus some of the leftover lentils. Delicious.
