Red Lentils are very similar to regular lentils, but with a bright red color.

We are always keeping things new and exciting around Bob's Red Mill, so the package you have may vary slightly from the one you see here, but we always promise the same wholesome product.



Lentils may be the oldest cultivated legume in history. Archeological digs have produced artifacts dating lentils clear back to 8,000 to 7,000BC! Our Red Lentils are sourced from the Palouse Valley of Washington and Idaho, where the very best lentils in the world are grown. The rich volcanic soil brings forth an abundant harvest year after year, earning the region its nickname, “Land of Lentils”. Short of growing them yourself, these are the freshest lentils you can get! These cute little red legumes have a mild, subtly sweet flavor. Because they break down while cooking, Red Lentils are perfect for dishes like soups, stews, curries and dips. They're very easy to prepare, needing no presoaking and cooking up in just 15 minutes!

Though small in size, lentils are a nutritional all-star. They're rich in fiber and contain about a steak's worth of protein—making them a healthy meat substitute for vegans. Lentils are also packed with folate, iron, phosphorus, magnesium, zinc and potassium.

Lentils work wonderfully in just about any kind of savory dish you want to create. Lentils are delicious added to soups, stews, dals, curries and chilis, and are fantastic as a meat substitute for wraps, veggie burgers and meatless sloppy joes. They're also quite tasty cooked by themselves and served over rice or mixed with other vegetables. See our package for our favorite Red Lentil recipes - Jacob's Lentil Stew and Masoor Dal.

Creamy goodness
I used to buy red lentils my whole life to make my creamy lentil dinner that I usually eat once a week. My grocery store were out of my regular lentils one day, so I decided to try the red bob mill. I was hesitated in the beginning because of the price but I took it. I was very surprise that this package gave my lentil dinner a whole new definition. It is absolutely tasty and different from all t Review by Veggie lover / (Posted on 9/24/2011)
