Red Lentils cook faster than other lentils and are great for purees and soups, not remaining firm when cooked.
All lentils are high in fiber and protein, but low in fat. They cook quickly, but will slow when combined with salt or acidic ingredients - so add these last.

Basic Lentil & Pea Cooking Directions:
- Sort Them: Place dried lentils or peas on a pan or clean kitchen towel and sort them - pick out any broken or shriveled ones and remove any stones or debris. (Natural products can contain debris and you'll be happy you followed this step when it's time to eat them).
- Cook Them: Measure out 1½ cups of water or stock for every cup of lentils or peas you are planning to cook. Bring the water to a boil, then add your lentils or peas. Bring them back to a boil and then reduce to a simmer and partially cover, cooking until tender (usually 30-45 minutes).
- Tip: Add dried peas & lentils to any soup or stew as long as you make sure you have enough liquid in the pot to thoroughly cook the lentils & peas. (1½ cups of water or stock for every cup of lentils or peas).
