How to Use:
Rinse. On occasion, you’ll find small rocks or debris mixed in with dried lentils. To avoid eating them, rinse the lentils in a fine-mesh sieve and pick them over before you cook them. Discard any shriveled lentils in addition to debris.
Then, simmer! Unlike when you’re cooking couscous or quinoa, you don’t need to use a specific lentil: cups of water ratio. Just fill a large pot halfway with water, bring it to a boil, and add the lentils. Simmer until they’re tender.
