Red Split Lentils
A vegetarian favourite, this colourful and nourishing wholefood provides high levels of protein and fibre while being naturally low in fat and sugar. Lentils readily absorb the flavours of the ingredients they are cooked with and this makes them super versatile in both sweet and savoury recipes. They are great in so many dishes, including hearty meals and soups, all the way down to dips and burgers.
To cook red split lentils, start by rinsing thoroughly and then add a 1:4 ratio of lentils to boiling water, cover and simmer for about 20-25 minutes, until tender. Red split lentils are super versatile for inclusion in burger patties, salads and traditional Indian dishes like dahl, paired with your favourite combination of herbs and spices. They are also a great addition to curries, soups and stews to thicken them up and provide a heart, filling dish. Try out this recipe for Vegan Mushroom and Lentil Shepherd’s Pie using red split lentils. It is the perfect nourishing meal for the whole family.
