Vitacost Red Lentils - Non-GMO Description

These colorful, quick-cooking lentils have a mild, slightly sweet, earthy flavor and soft texture – perfect in Indian and Middle Eastern dishes, soups and stews.

  • Non-GMO Project Verified
  • No additives or preservatives
  • Vegan
  • Popular in Indian & Middle Eastern cuisine
  • Cook up soft – ideal for purees or thickening recipes
  • Faster cooking than other types of lentils 

Love lentils? If you normally load up on the green or brown variety, these red lentils will be a pleasing change of pace for your palate. Slightly sweet and nutty tasting, red lentils are the same as brown lentils, only their skins have been removed. The remaining reddish-orange seeds cook up quickly, letting you enjoy this versatile legume in less time than others.

 

Because they’re hulled, red lentils tend to lose their shape while cooking, breaking down and becoming soft. They mix in well to Indian or Middle Eastern dishes or can be pureed and added to soups or stews to thicken the texture.
