Tropical Storm Isaac has brought clouds to Central Kentucky so my solar cooking plans for this weekend are on hold... <br />fear not, the "Nissan Thermos" to the rescue..... see link below.....<br /><br />http://www.apocketfullofwanderlust.com/2012/09/cooking-in-thermos.html

I did some experimentation and a blog post on this a while back. It is really a pretty cool way to cook if your in a limiting situation. Works good with dehydrated foods too

We've been playing with it as well. Oatmeal and raisins came out great LOL.<br /><br />Dried beans and rice worked...<br /><br />Lentils next.

That bean concoction looked amazing.&nbsp; Thanks for posting, I MUST look into the possibilities of a thermos!

Seraphim, I forgot to mention I added lentils to my dish today, they were leftover from the Bean Curry dish I made a week ago. &nbsp;They came out great!<br /><br />

Did they require soaking before you cooked them?


- akblack10 - 09-02-2012

No need to soak lentils before cooking in the Thermos, but dried black beans should be soaked first!<br />-AK

Thanks. I may be slow, but I'll get there eventually lol. Just made some bean soup with chipotle tomatoes. Spicy.

I use a <span id="post_message_1274852019">thermos brand thermos... but I will suggest if you are going to buy one that you get a wide mouth version.... makes them easier to clean... and it have to be the metal kind ... the better the thermos the better this works<br /></span>
