Organic Lentils, Red Split

About Red Lentils

This colorful and nourishing wholefood is high in protein and fiber while being naturally low in fat and sugar. You can make lentils both sweet and savory because they absorb the flavors of the ingredients they're cooked with. You can use them for everything from hearty meals to soups to dips and burgers.

Uses for Red Lentils

In order to cook red split lentils, rinse them thoroughly and then add a 1:4 ratio of lentils to boiling water, cover, and simmer until tender, about 20-25 minutes. When combined with your favourite herbs and spices, red split lentils make great additions to burger patties, salads, and traditional Indian dishes like dahl. Also, they're an excellent thickening agent for curries, soups and stews, providing a hearty, filling dish. Check out our dahl recipe here.
