About this article
To make lenses on the stove, start by rinsing the lenses under cold running water for 30 seconds. Then place the lentils in a saucepan, add twice as much water and heat the contents until the water drops quickly. At that time, reduce the heat and swim gently for 20 to 30 minutes. Then remove the pan from the heat and let the lentils stand for 5 to 10 minutes to completely absorb the water. Finally, place the lentils in a colander to drain out excess water and season with salt if desired. To learn more, including how to cook lentils in a slow cooker, scroll down.
