Red split lentils
Cook faster than the whole variety, and when cooked, form a lovely puree. The split variety is more suited to making dhal and soup, whereas the whole lentils can be used to make salads and vegetarian burgers. From appetisers to desserts, lentils not only add a nutritious punch, but also a variety of texture other ingredients can’t match.

How To Use
Lentils add colour to your pot of curry or stew. Soups are given an extra hearty element when wholesome lentils are added. You can use lentils to prepare a delicate veggie dip by pureeing them, then seasoning with citrus and nut butter. In a salad, lentils add a punch of nutrition and in a stir-fry, they add surprising texture and crunch. You can even add a few tablespoonfuls to your taco or quesadilla fillings!
