Good point FFGirl. Writing "cooked lentils" as opposed to "lentils, cooked" would clear up a lot of confusion. I would've understood the recipe to begin with cooked legumes. As Cheflayne indicated, I may be eating seconds. If I were writing the recipe, I would instruct the cook to first weigh or measure the legumes, then cook then individually. Otherwise, you need to inform the cook the weight of raw lentils, etc., needed for the recipe.
