Red Lentils

auto deliver details are shown in a tooltip

Red lentils are a versatile food that provides a good source of protein, fiber, B-complex vitamins, iron and zinc. A member of the legume family, lentils are known for their lens-shaped seeds. Enjoy red lentils in soups, curries, or simply as a side dish on their own. They make any meal more nutritious, delicious and satisfying. Red lentils can be a staple of any pantry!

How to Cook Red Lentils

First, rinse the lentils by placing them in a sieve under running water. Transfer them to a pan with water or broth (for every 1 cup of lentils, use 1 1/2 cups of water or broth). Feel free to add flavorings, but don’t add salt yet. Bring the lentils to a boil, then turn down the heat and let them simmer. Stir them occasionally to prevent sticking. Cook for 10 to 15 minutes for a firm texture that can be used in salads. Cook for 15 to 25 minutes for a puree. Add salt once the lentils are almost done cooking.

Red lentils cook in less time than green lentils and high in protein.

The red lentils do not have to be soaked overnight. They are ready to eat after about 30 minutes of cooking.
