How to Cook Green Lentils (basic instructions)

  1. Rinse one cup of dried lentils with water; pick over and remove any debris.
  2. Transfer them to a saucepan and add 3 cups liquid (water, broth, etc.) Add seasonings and aromatics of choice. Add a pinch of salt (salt may slow down cooking a bit, but it is important to flavoring the lentils.)
  3. Bring the water to a rapid simmer, then cover and reduce heat to medium-low. Simmer until lentils are tender (anywhere from 25 to 45 minutes, adding more water as needed to keep the lentils submerged.)
  4. Once the lentils are cooked, strain them well be serving
