How to Cook Lentils Vegetables

Boiled Lentils


Place the lentils vegetables in a large pot. Cover with water and bring to a boil over medium heat. Reduce the heat to low and simmer, partially covered, until tender. The cooking time can vary from 45 minutes to 11/2 hours, depending on the age and variety you are using. Be sure to check the water level during the cooking process as lentils absorb substantially more water than beans and can quickly boil dry. Burned lentils have a very unpleasant taste.

Boiled lentils should be thoroughly drained. They can be used in other recipes or can be seasoned with salt, pepper, cumin and fresh parsley - and a little olive oil if you like. Serve with rice as a one-dish vegetarian meal or set them alongside baked ham or hearty, garlicky grilled sausages.
