How to Use

Basic Instructions:

Rinse lentils well with fresh water. Pick over to remove any debris.
Combine 1 cup black lentils with 3 cups of liquid (water, stock, etc). Be sure to use a large enough saucepan, lentils will at least double in size. Add seasoning of choice. Stir in a pinch of kosher salt (the salt will slow the cooking, but it will enhance flavor and help make the lentils easy to digest.)
Bring to a boil, then cover and reduce heat to medium-low. Simmer until lentils are tender (about 20 to 25 minutes, adding more water as needed to keep the lentils submerged.)
Once the lentils are cooked, strain them well be serving

Suzy's Tips

For a healthy side next to things like Greek baked cod or Spatchcock chicken, simply cook black lentils as indicated above and finish them with a drizzle of our Early Harvest Greek extra virgin olive oil.

Please note during the cold winter months, our olive oils can sometimes freeze during transit and cause some of the natural waxes to separate from the oil, causing some cloudiness or floating particles. This is completely normal and does not impact the quality of the olive oil in any way. To thaw, simply leave the olive oil in room temperature. Do not in any way warm up the olive oil in a microwave or put it in direct sunlight. Olive oil is best stored in a cool dark room to preserve its life and quality.
