Lentils come in many different colors including red, green, and brown. Red lentils have a sweet and nutty flavour. They take about 10 mins to cook; the result is a tender lentil soft all the way through. They’re great for curries, dals or for thickening soup.
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 about 10 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.
