Red Split Lentils are a colourful and flavour-filled pulse. 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 canÕt match.
Red Lentils contain iron, as well as some of the same anti-oxidants found in tea and red wine, theyÕre an excellent low-fat choice for any diet, and particularly useful for vegans. Quick-cooking, theyÕre considered one of the tastiest lentils out there!
