Cooking Instructions

  1. Lentils don’t require pre-soaking before you cook them but soaking them will reduce their phytate content.
  2. Rinse the lentils first to remove any natural dust or debris.
  3. Fill a pan with 3 cups of liquid to 1 cup of lentils – the lentils will triple in size so use a large pan.
  4. Boil and cover, reducing the heat to a simmer and then cook until tender (20-25 mins)
  5. Add salt at the end of cooking – adding it during cooking will result in tough lentils.


For optimum freshness keep in a cool place away from moisture and direct sunlight. Store in a tightly sealed bag or container.


Family Tip:

  1. These lentils make for a yummy curry, especially served with our basmati rice.
  2. Make a large batch of red lentil salad that can be served alongside various dishes to make weeknight cooking easier.
