  2. Do rinse and sift your lentils before cooking because sometimes there are rocks. Remove debris now and you’ll thank yourself later.
  3. Asafoetida (also known as hing) is an additional spice/powder known for reducing the gas-forming qualities of legumes, including lentils. If you are sensitive to beans, try it!
