I was having my after dinner evening snack, as I always do, and I put some things together I never have.  I had made lentils for dinner.  They had zucchini, tumeric, sea salt, a little garlic powder and a little bit of blackstrap molasses.  

Well, I was craving more lentils for my after dinner snack, but I usually do some kind of fruit and nuts or something with stevia and some kind of spice that goes with sweet stuff.  Like cinnamon or carob or cardamom.  Well, I'm like Hmmm...  So I took some currants, not a lot, but a small handful, cinnamon, some stevia and mixed it into my lentils that I had made.  And I was like WOW, this is good.

Now, this may not be new to any of you, but I was floored by how I liked this combo.  And I think I should look into making some desserts with lentil flours.  My son is not allergic to it.  I bought some Almond flour and haven't used it yet, because I typically try to make a treat that the whole family can have, and he's allergic to nuts.  But he seems to do well on lentils.  And so do I!  The only downside is my daughter is a B and they're not supposed to eat it.  Oh well, I can't win them all, but I sure liked the combo of sweet and lentils.

I see there is on recipe in the database for pumpkin lentil flour muffins.  Anybody have any experience with baking with lentil flour????

NO experience NONE here.. in fact I don't own any flower.. to scared..

but I have decided that I also need to make some things I can have..

I might try the quinoa and agave.. and some blueberries.. seems all that would be a healthy for my combo..

I also wish to experiment making snaks that are not just fruit or some sweet..

One thing I learned yesterday was that the protein powder that is relatively neutral to gritty but tolerable .. comes back still hours later.. just enough to show me how long that can hang around inside of my upper stomach..

I am looking for cold things.. sometimes.. so frozen fruit is a good one.. but for the quinoa.. it does not do much, it has not much flavor all by itself.. I cooked some in a flat pan and forgot about it until I smelled the toasted  quinoa.. I think if one was to be real cateful in doing this on purpose it might make a good type base for a fruitpie type thingy..

I am NOW allowed some dairy.. I might just make some ouinoa bottoms to add the topping of cheeses and some tomato sauce and make my own pizza.. add some green peppers or some fruit like peaches, endless possibilities.. thanks for this post it will galvanise me to experiment..

At our local (okay, an hour away) international farmer's market, they serve a cold lentil salad with raisins, red onions, parsley and turmeric.  Tastes like it has some vinegar in it too.

I love the sweet and savoury combo personally!!

I mentioned on another post that for lunch sometimes I like to combine bennie beans (pinto for example) with canned fish (tuna/mackerel/sardines), chopped onion, celery, spices, garlic, lime juice, a little olive oil, tahini, salt and pepper and some dried cranberries (that have been sweetened with pineapple juice) - sometimes I'll do dried (or fresh) blueberries instead of the cranberries.  Oh and I like blueberries or chopped mango or pear on my romaine and mackerel salad.

The whole sweet/savoury thing just works for my taste buds.  So ABNoWay, I'm so with you on your discovery.  I'm going to try combining some dried fruit with my next batch of lentils......

Lentil flour is often used for baked snacks in India, and sweet/sour flavor mixes are common.

Yesterday I found bags of reasonably priced lentil flour crisps that tasted great.  Too bad they have garbanzo, potato and corn as well.  A tempting occasional snack, but I am not going to stock up on these.

Yeah, it wasn't so much the discovery of sweet/savory.  Because I do that often also and like it very much.  I'm one of those people that the more flavors in one dish, the better.  To a point.  I've pushed that to ridiculousness at some points though.

But it was more the discovery of using lentils to do this.  I've made them with dates in them to give a little sweetness, but once they were cooked, it wasn't real obvious.  But this time it was more bold and the lentil flavor goes well with sweet.  That sort of surprised me.  But I would really like to bake with it, if possible.

I would probably like that.  I can't do bananas, and my swami has plantains as a black dot.  BOOOOOOOOOOOOHOOOOOOOOOOOO.  I love plantains.
