Hello...When I cook lentils as usual I cook more that I need and freeze
the rest.  The portion size for freezing can vary.  I freeze most every
thing in 1 quart containers, but others might find pint size sufficient.

If you have any questions about cooking with tofu, purchasing tofu,
storing tofu, substituting with tofu...any thing you can think of,
please ask and I will be glad to answer.  There must be other people
on the list who can advise also.  I suggest you start with us as a
resource first.  Books can be kind of overwhelming sometimes.
