How to cook  See how to cook this product

Wash lentils under running water. Place in a pan with water or broth (use 1 1/2 cups of liquid to 1 cup of lentils). Bring to the boil, then turn down and simmer. Stir them now and again to prevent sticking to the pan. Cooking time depends on whether you want them for salads, a thick puree or turn into mush. Around 15 minutes will start to turn them into a puree, 25 minutes you’ll have mush. Cook them for around 10-15 minutes if you want to use them in a salad, you want a tender but firm texture and for them to still hold their shape.
