Beans and Lentils are easy to prepare

  • First, sort your beans or lentils for any foreign matter and then rinse.
  • With beans, some cooks like to do a preliminary soak by soaking in water overnight or for at least 8 hours. After optional soaking drain and rinse beans.
  • Next, place beans or lentils in a pot, cover with sufficient water, and bring to a slow boil. Reduce heat and simmer until tender, adding water as needed. Simmer time will vary depending on soak time and size of bean. The simmer time for lentils can vary from 15 minutes to an hour, less time than beans will need.
  • Note: As with any supply of dry natural beans or lentils, this product may contain small pebbles, so please remember to sort your beans and lentils first.
