Welcome to our blog! We wanted a place to share reviews of Mark Bittman recipes from "How to Cook Everything" and "How to Cook Everything Vegetarian" cookbooks. This blog's purpose is not to re-post recipes, but instead we will leave feedback for HTCE and HTCEV users on recipes we have tried, what we have loved and what we haven't loved.
Quote from Intro:
"Anyone can cook, and most everyone should. It's a sorry sign that many people consider cooking 'from scratch' an unusual and even rare talent. In fact, it is a simple and rewarding craft, one that anyone can learn and even succeed at from the get-go." -Bittman, HTCE

I wanted to replicate the lentil soup from our favorite Greek restaurant but this recipe needs a few adjustments, or maybe I should choose one of the other lentil soup recipes from this book. I will try this again but I'll make these adjustments:
double the garlic
reduce the cardamom pods to 1
omit the mustard seeds

Update: I just found this article written by Bittman about Dal. Here is the recipe that goes along with the video in the post.
