Solar cooked lentil stew

My wife has been taking a legume-based soup/stew with her to work. I’ve decided to cut costs by solar cooking dry legumes. Cooking beans and lentils in a solar cooker is my favorite way to cook legumes. Some people often mistakenly believe that legumes will not soften in a solar cooker. Not true. Some people also mistakenly believe that legumes never soften fully at 7,000 feet elevation. Not true either! While it’s possible to sauté in a solar oven, I didn’t have time until later in the evening. My wife did the sautéing and added the lentils and herbs and spices to suit her taste.
