Red Lentils are a delicious source of protein. Make them into a pilaf using fragrant Arrowhead Mills Basmati rice or enjoy as a flavorful pureed side dish called dahl, as they do in India. Their earthy flavor enhances soups, too!

2 cups water
Place lentils with water in a large sauce pan. Bring to a boil, reduce heat and simmer for 30 to 45 minutes, or until done. Makes about 2 1/2 cups of cooked lentils.

These cook up much quicker than the instructions on the wrapper -- to avoid being really mushy, try 25-30 min. When cooked, to my surprise, they were be a pale green/yellow/brown color. Red lentils are my go-to substitute for ground beef (can't eat due to sudden food intolerance) since they are a bit mushy & mix well with spices. I've made sloppy joes with them (cook 1 cup dry to substitute for a pound of ground beef) and also tacos & chili. I use the same spices, give or take, & turns out pretty good, but you'd never mistake it for actual meat. But this way I can eat my version & the rest of my family can have the real deal. I cook the entire bag at once & freeze in the portions I need. For lentil soup, I use brown or green lentils which tend to keep their shape.
These red lentils are delicious and work well in Indian recipes. Cook them with onion, garlic, salt and pepper and they become a nice meat substitute served along side brown rice and vegetable of choice.
Easy to cook

Lentils are great for curries and soups. Have always bought this brand and been happy with it.
