with brown rice. My go-to meal when I'm the only one I have to feed. Here's what I do: every three weeks or so I sautee some carrots, celery, and onions, then dump in a couple of pounds of lentils, toss in a veal bone and a bay leaf, and let the whole thing simmer until I need the stovetop for something else. This usually amounts to between five and seven hours of cooking. Then I freeze it in lots of little one-and-a-half cup servings so that I may cackle with pleasure at my leguminous horde every time I open the freezer.
