Do I really need to soak the lentils?
While is not vital, soaking your lentils will make them more digestive and remove the compounds that cause gas, also you will reduce the cooking time, which is always a bonus. I’ve started soaking my lentils for these reasons. To make it easier, I like to let them soak while I prepare the rest of the ingredients. If I’m meal prepping I put them to soak first thing, so they’ll be ready when I am.
If I’m making a lentil stew I let them soak for longer, but for this particular recipe I prefer to just soak them for 30 min-1 hour, so they don’t lose their shape when cooking.
*If you don’t have or can’t find tahini, peanut butter or almond butter may be substituted
