nothing particularly special about these Goya lentils, which is fine. $2/lb, this is 8oz which should be enough as a supplement to maybe two main courses. Submersed in NYC tap water; soaking lentils is said to reduce the lectin content which causes upset stomach. I can speak from experience when I say that unsoaked lentils aren’t as hearty and can really mess with your digestive system.
One of my staples! along with ramen noodles & sardines. Gonna cook it tomorrow.
