Cooking Instructions: 

Step 1: Preparation

  • Rinse the lentils under cold water to remove any dirt or debris.
  • Optional: Soak the lentils in water for 1-2 hours to reduce cooking time and improve digestibility.
  • Drain the soaked lentils before cooking.

Step 2: Cooking

  • In a saucepan, combine the lentils with water or broth in a 1:3 ratio (1 cup lentils to 3 cups liquid).
  • Bring the mixture to a boil, then reduce the heat to a simmer.
  • Cover the saucepan and let the lentils cook for about 20-30 minutes or until they are tender but not mushy.
  • For firmer lentils, reduce the cooking time; for softer lentils, increase the cooking time.

Step 3: Seasoning and Serving

  • Once the lentils are cooked, drain any excess liquid if necessary.
  • Season the lentils with salt and pepper to taste.
  • Enhance the flavor by adding herbs, spices, or aromatics such as garlic, onion, cumin, or bay leaves.
  • Serve the cooked lentils as a side dish, in soups, stews, or salads, or use them as a base for various vegetarian or vegan recipes.
