Re: what can I do w/ red lentils?
Stuff an acorn squash. Chop it in half, gut it, and bake it face down on parchment paper at 400 degrees for about 30 minutes (give or take depending on the size of the squash). While it's cooking, caramelize some onions and then toss in some peppers. When that is cooked and the squash is done, mix the onions and peppers in with the lentils. Season the squash to taste (I personally like to use a bit of brown sugar and some smoked paprika) and fill it with the lentil mix. If you like, you can also dice some fresh spinach and use that as a bed inside the squash for the lentil mix.
