Am I the last to notice that lentils go from avoid to NEUTRAL for us nonnies?  They are avoids for secretor O's but neutral for us (oh, wait--I just said that!).  Ha!  That so rarely happens!  It is usually the other way!  Like with strawberries.  Pffft.  Don't get me started.  Anyway, we can have lentils!  Who knew?  Not I.

Not that I really want a lentil, mind you.  But it is just nice to know we have permission *lol*.  Especially since, there is this wonderful carribean restaurant in town that makes a delicious pumpkin soup (omg, omg, OMG).  But sometimes they put lentils in it, so I not only never order that, I never go to that restaurant because I know I'll WANT to order that.  But now I COULD.  ...Except, what do you want to bet there is wheat flour or cornstarch in the soup as a thickener, too?

Anyway...lentils!  Hey, I just thought of something:  since sprouted lentils are in basically EVERY ezekiel bread out there, it is exciting from that perspective, too.  Not that we should be eating the grains in the ezekiel, but at least they are sprouted, and at least we know the sprouted lentil in there isn't a foe.

Yay, team!

2, 4, 6, 8, what do we appreciate?
Lentils, lentils, yaaaaay, lentils!

Bring on the dosa bread and maybe a little pappadam.

Lentil flour is pretty versatile and mild.  I think I blogged some cookies that used lentil flour and brown rice flour.  I have a more sinful cookie recipe, but these fit the bill just fine and are lower carb.

I tend to over-enjoy those few foods that nonnies only can have

P.S.  I wonder why secretors can't have it but we can?  Such a rare alignment of the stars!  Muah!

it's like avocado, in fact lentil avocado salad is great, this used to be one of my bestest recipes when I was a normal A secretor and could eat beans

Not to rain on your parade, Drea, but wasn't there something around here a few months back about sprouted lentils developing a lectin that's bad for some people?  Very fuzzy memory ....

I just bought my first *legal* pappadums since BTDing, now that I'm a Nonnie Princess. Happy happy joy joy. (ok, so they're not 100%, ingredients-wise, but I pick & choose my times for nit-picking - i'll probably learn how to make them w/a compliant oil)
Now to figure out what to do with that coconut oil I just bought! Avoid to neutral, folks!

Drea,
found this:
Quoted Text
Injections of lentil lectin into the knee joint cavity of non-sensitized rabbits resulted in the development of arthritis which was indistinguishable morphologically from rheumatoid.

http://www.dadamo.com/wiki/wiki.pl/Lectins,_Mitogen_and_Blastogenic_Effects
Quoted Text
.....lectins can be used exclusively to maintain transplants in animals for up to two years. Lentil lectin induces striking transplant tolerance In both mice and humans.


and this.......read the whole thread, it s interesting:

Lola, I knew I could count on your searching expertise!

So, it seems from what you posted that sprouted lentils are still okay for anyone who can eat unsprouted lentils. Did I read right?

that s what I have understood, also. )
I d treat lentil sprouts as a TierII avoid, unless you were a nonnie.
how s that? )
the Ezequiel 4:9 has them, yet is neutral for all......

Lola, I'm confused by that post on lectins.  The first statement sounded like lentil lectin causes joint problems that are like Rheumatoid arthritis.  Later down, the statement sounds like lentil lectin turns off  R. Arthritis.

They are for different species. A lectin may be bene for a rabbit but avoid for a horse. Different blood type, genetics and so on.

The testing that matters to us is testing on humans. Animal testing is great in some areas, weak in others.

Information means nothing without context.

right, this info was fished from this site........I guess Dr D wanted us to have other points of view to build our own criteria.

It is funny, but I was looking at this very website this afternoon about sprouting lentils, but they have moved to a new site since your post! You are right, the place is a gold mine of info. I have been working on a batch since Saturday night, (my first time ever to sprout anything on purpose!) and found out on this site that I haven't been giving mine enough air, apparently. Why under the sun butterbeans will sprout in the refrigerator in a covered bowl when you don't want them to is beyond me.   Of course, they weren't dried, either. Anyway, these things still smell all right after all this time and a zillion rinses. Some of them have long, green sprouts and some of them are barely beginning. So, should I eat these things now or allow them to finish? I certainly don't want a case of salmonella or anything!    I have used the jar method covered with nylon net and tilted toward the top with the lentils spread out over the length of the jar to allow water to drain. And I'm using organic, red lentils. Ideas, anyone?

You can eat them at whatever stage of sprouting you want.  If you just want to eat the sprouted seed, then as soon as there is a sprout, you can eat it.  If you want the green sprout, but not necessarily the original "bean", then wait until the sprout is longer.  Both should be good (and good for you) as long as you keep them rinsed so they don't get moldy, etc...

I started sprouting broccoli seeds then buckwheat and lentil.

Organic lentil does not sprout and I am going to get it from seeds people.

I am using jar with screen top but was planning to get stackable tray or Easy Sprout Sprouter..

I appreciate any of your experience.

This might be the incentive you need to get a SWAMI for yourself.  Lentils are a diamond for me and coconut oil is a beneficial!

Anybody know of a source for lentil flour?  I can't find it locally and VitaCost does not carry it.

Thanks for any replies!

Here is a link to Amazon that lists lentil flour.

Never heard of lentil chips before. Wonder what they taste like..... I don't want to pay over $50 to find out!

Thanks a lot, ABJoe. I think I am going to finish this batch up and start a new one. I like the way they don't lose their color as they do when they are cooked - they look a lot more appetizing! They haven't gotten moldy because I could smell the faintest sign of it if they had.
