Freezing Lentils

Chris asked about freezing lentils and maybe freezing lentils and rice. 
As I've posted before, my regular staple freezer food is burritos made 
from taco lentils and mexican rice. I make about twenty at a time and 
freeze them for no-fuss meals.

Your lentils should freeze fine, just watch how you thaw them. Microwave 
thawing can be uneven, and I've had some lentils turn to powder this way. 
I usually thaw my burritos partially, then finish the cooking in the 
toaster oven. Actually, I cook mine until the outside is crisp, giving it 
more the feel of a chimichanga without the deep frying.
