Lentils are edible seeds from the legume family.

They’re well known for their lens shape and sold with or without their outer husks intact.

How to cook

Lentils are very easy to overcook and become mushy! For this legume, try not to over cook.

Rinse the lentils and drain the water off. If you see any bad lentils, or small stones that might have got mixed into the beans, please remove it.
Soak the lentils for 15 - 20 minutes.

In a large pot, add 1 cup of lentils and 4 cups of water. If you have, add some kombu to this pot to cook together too.
Bring the pot to a boil. Then reduce to a very low simmer and cover. Cook for 20 - 30 minutes.

Drain the water from the lentils and remove the kombu, before using the lentils for your recipes. 

How to Store Cooked Beans

Cooked lentils can be refrigerated in an airtight container for up to 4 days.
Freezing cooked beans are a great way to stock up plant-based staples that you can use in recipes and save cooking time too! 
Pack cooled down cooked beans (remove the water!) in a salable and resealable bag, and freeze it up to 6 months. It will be useful to freeze them in serving size portions ( 1 or 2 cups) so that you can defrost just the amount that you want in a recipe.
Enjoy your plant-based protein! 

Health Benefits of Black Turtle Beans

Lentils are often overlooked, even though they’re an inexpensive way of getting a wide range of nutrients.

For example, they’re packed with B vitamins, magnesium, zinc and potassium.

Lentils are made up of over 25% protein, which makes them an excellent meat alternative. They’re also a great source of iron, a mineral that is sometimes lacking in vegetarian diets.

Though different types of lentils may vary slightly in their nutrient contents, one cup (198 grams) of cooked lentils generally provides about :

  • Calories: 230
  • Carbs: 39.9 grams
  • Protein: 17.9 grams
  • Fat: 0.8 grams
  • Fiber: 15.6 grams
  • Thiamine: 22% of the Reference Daily Intake (RDI)
  • Niacin: 10% of the RDI
  • Vitamin B6: 18% of the RDI
  • Folate: 90% of the RDI
  • Pantothenic acid: 13% of the RDI
  • Iron: 37% of the RDI

  • Potassium: 21% of the RDI
  • Zinc: 17% of the RDI
  • Copper: 25% of the RDI
  • Manganese: 49% of the RDI

Lentils are high in fiber, which supports regular bowel movements and the growth of healthy gut bacteria. Eating lentils can increase your stool weight and improve your overall gut function.

Furthermore, lentils contain a broad range of beneficial plant compounds called phytochemicals, many of which protect against chronic diseases, such as heart disease and type 2 diabetes
