    Split red lentils are a reddish-orange colour, and are shaped like small disks. They have a mild, earthy flavour and soft texture. Split lentils cook very quickly, and require no soaking time; as they have a tendency to quickly lose their texture, they are often puréed. These lentils are especially popular in East Indian dal dishes, and in spicy soups and side dishes.

  • Directions

    In a large pot, bring 3 cups water (per 1 cup lentils) to a boil. Add lentils and simmer partly covered for about 30 minutes; check for tenderness after 18-20 minutes. To retain firmness, try adding a teaspoon of oil to the water before adding the lentils.

  • Uses

    Try using organic split red lentils in soups and various vegetarian dishes.

  • Storage

    When stored in a cool (preferably less than 60˚F) and dry location (less than 65% humidity), shelf life is approximately 12 months.
