HOW TO ENJOY

Lentils can be paired with meat stews, vegetable dishes, snacks, mashed potatoes and soups.

They are also perfect for salads, casseroles and stuffing as they tend to keep their shape after cooking. You do not need to soak lentils like other dried beans or peas, but if you do (30-40 minutes is enough) you will cut the cooking time down by half.
Rinse lentils under running water before cooking.
Then, lentils can be cooked on the stove (or in a pressure cooker). Cover lentils with water or broth, bring to a boil, reduce the heat, almost completely covering the pan with a lid. If foam forms, it must be removed.
Lentils usually need 20-25 minutes to get cooked. Add a pinch of salt at the end so that lentils donÕt stay hard throughout cooking.
