Green lentils are a staple in our pantry! They can easily be cooked up and added to different meals for a boost of nutrition. We love tossing green lentils in salads, and even using them in veggie burgers for a vegetarian source of protein. Lentils can also be used as a meat substitute for tacos, and will complement any meal as a healthy side dish. Try mashing them up and using them as a dip for chips at your next party.
How to Cook Green Lentils
Rinse one cup of dried lentils with water. Transfer them to a saucepan and add two cups water. Add any seasoning to be used at this time. Bring the water to a rapid simmer, then reduce the heat to a gentle simmer. Continue to cook uncovered for 20 to 30 minutes. Once the lentils are cooked, strain them and add a touch of salt to taste.
