What are brown lentils and how to use them?
Brown lentils (also known as “Spanish Pardina” lentils are tan in color, have a firm texture, and cook quite quickly. Their mild, earthy taste makes them an easy addition to various dishes, as they don’t overpower more dominant flavors. Don’t worry about soaking these humble little legumes: All they need is a relatively quick boil on the stovetop.
How to cook brown lentils (basic instructions)
- Sort and rinse 1 cup of lentils and combine with 3 cups of water or stock.
- Bring to a boil, then cover and reduce the heat to simmer for about 30 to 45 minutes or until the lentils are fully cooked to tender. Season to your liking.
