Ingredients

1 cup red lentils

3 1/2 cup purified water

Wash the lentils and remove any debris and discolored or deformed bits.

Combine the lentils and purified water in a medium saucepan. Bring to a boil. Reduce the heat and simmer for 10 minutes, or until the lentils are tender. The lentils will turn a lighter orange color, the beans will split open, and the mixture will thicken to the consistency of runny oatmeal. Do not strain.

Combine 2 cups of the cooked lentils with the carrot puree. Whisk the mixture until uniformly combined.
