Stove-Top Preparation
  1. Sort and rinse 1 cup of Bob’s Red Mill Lentils. Place in a medium size pot and add 3 cups of water. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat to medium-low and cook until tender, about 20 minutes. Make sure to keep lentils covered with water during cooking; if water level is low, add additional water and reduce the cooking temperature. Makes approximately 2-1/2 cups cooked lentils.
Pressure Cooker Preparation
  1. Sort and rinse 1 cup of Bob’s Red Mill Brown Lentils. Place in pressure cooker and add 3 cups of water. Secure lid, set pressure to high and begin heating on high heat. When steam begins a steady flow from the release valve, reduce heat to low and let cook for 8 - 10 minutes. When cooking time has completed, turn heat off and allow pressure to decrease naturally for 15 minutes. Carefully remove lid and drain water from lentils.
