  1. Hi, my question is do you want to end up with 3 cups of lentils or do you start with 3 cups of dry lentils and boil them. Thanks in advance for the clarification.

    1. Hi, it’s wise to boil 3 cup of lentils, then measuring only 3 cups once it’s boiled. The rest you can keep in the refrigerator to use on another recipe.

  2. Hi, you mention ginger in the directions but there is no ginger in the ingredients, Also, you mention red peppers in the ingredients but you don’t mention that in the directions. Thanks in advance for your response.
