How to Store and Prepare Lentils Vegetables

Storage and Preparation:


Like dried beans, lentils vegetables should be stored in a cool, dry place, preferably in an airtight container.

While lentils do not need to be presoaked, they must be washed and picked over carefully before using to eliminate any pebbles or dirt. The easiest way to do this is to place the dry lentils in a large bowl and run clear water over them. Any lentils that float to the surface should be discarded, along with other extraneous bits and pieces that appear when the seeds are stirred. Drain the lentils well, look for pebbles or tiny stones, and then continue with the recipe. Most bulk lentils sold in boxes have been prescreened and do not contain stones, pebbles, or other matter, although boxes that have been kept on the shelf for a long period of time may have attracted bugs and should be washed.
