Initially, I wrote this for myself. But then I thought, hmmm…why not share these intimate details with soon to be first time moms or even those considering to get pregnant again. Maybe just maybe, someone will read something here and learn from my mistakes. Or at least be encouraged to know that the next pregnancy can be better.

In my opinion, the best kind of recipes require minimal prep time & don’t need to be checked until it’s done. I usually mix these lentils with diced fresh tomatoes, cucumbers, feta and brushetta sauce. The combinations are endless though which is why I make basic recipe often.
Step 1: Rinse your lentils in a sieve. Pick out anything that doesn’t look like a lentil & throw it away.
Step 2: Put all the ingredients and washed lentils inside the rice cooker. (I bought this Aroma Professional at Costco for $40 bucks!)
Step 3: Press the “Slow Cook” button. After 1.5-2 hours, the machine will beep when it’s done. Take them out within 15 minutes & transfer to a tightly sealed container in the fridge. Or add a bit more more water and press “Keep Warm” if you’re serving them as is.

* I’ve only had success making lentils in the rice cooker. I have no idea how long it takes on the stovetop or if the consistency is as amazing as using this machine. But I will do my best to test and update that process soon.
This is by far the closest protein smoothie I’ve ever created that resembles the consistency and taste of a frappucino from Starbucks. When those cravings kick in, I’m no longer tempted because I can just whip this up in minutes. Go make it now! I promise you’ll love it. And please, don’t be intimidated by my blender. This recipe doesn’t call for too much ice. If you have a simple blender you should be good to go!
