How to Cook Red Lentils?

Lentils are an extremely tasty dish and like any other - they have their subtleties for preparation.

In this advice, we're not going to talk about the classic lentils that we all know, but we're going to talk about how to cook red lentils.

In order to preserve all the beneficial substances in lentils, we need to know how to properly cook them. Before we cook them, however, we need to prepare the red lentils in advance and here's how:

How to cook red lentils

- First, you need to wash the lentils very well under cold water, then you need to remove all the dirt, as well as the damaged grains. You should also remove the scales;

- Then the lentils are covered with water and left to soak for two to three hours. This way, they will swell, which will help them cook faster;

- Then you have to strain them from the liquid where they have soaked and then they are poured with warm water;

- Red lentils are cooked after 10-15 minutes.

Red lentils are a very good source of vitamins, minerals and trace elements and can be eaten by everyone, regardless of age. Red lentils are also very suitable for those who want to stick to a healthier way of eating, but at the expense of this, they cannot devote much time to spend in the kitchen.

For this purpose, try our suggestions for lentil cream soup or lentil salads.
