Lentils come in many different colors including red, green, and brown. Brown lentils are the most commonly used variety. They have a mild, earthy flavour, cook in about 20 -25 mins and hold their shape very well. Great for curries, soup, veggie burgers and salads.
Lentils are rich in fiber, which supports regular bowel movements and the growth of healthy gut bacteria. They are high in B vitamins, iron, magnesium, potassium and zinc. Lentils are also a good source of beneficial plant compounds called phytochemicals, which help protect against chronic diseases, such as heart disease and type 2 diabetes.
Use 3 cups water to 1 cup lentils. Boil and simmer for 20 to 25 minutes until tender. Cooking time may vary, so it is recommended to check for tenderness while cooking. Do not add salt to water during cooking as this can toughen the skin.
