Considered the gold standard in lentils, these small, deep olive green and black speckled lentils provide an exciting accent to any dish. Easily seasoned, they add an earthy, peppery flavor which complements rich stocks and sauces.

How to Prepare
Lentils can be prepared the day of serving since they do not need to be pre-soaked. Before washing lentils you should spread them out on a light colored plate or cooking surface to check for, and remove, small stones or debris. After this process, place the lentils in a strainer, and rinse them thoroughly under cool running water.
Mix with herbs, vegetables and seasonings for a tasty nutritious salad or side dish.
Mash into ‘meatless’ meatloaf or savory pate.
Add to soups, casseroles and stews and season to your favorite flavors.
Add to sweet baked goods for added moisture, nutrition and texture.
Make exotic cultural dishes such as daal curries ( tadka, shai, masala, sambar chole daal etc), chili, and delectable side dishes.

Storage
Store lentils in an airtight container in a cool, dry and dark place, for up to 12 months. Cooked lentils will keep fresh in the refrigerator for about three days if placed in a covered container.

The Healthiest Way of Cooking Lentils
To boil lentils, use three cups of liquid for each cup of lentils. Lentils placed in already boiling water will be easier to digest than those that were brought to a boil with the water. When the water returns to a boil, turn down the heat to simmer and cover and boil for 20 minutes.
