Red Lentils cook quickly and have a slightly sweet flavor. They are a great choice for soups and stews. They're also packed full of nutritional benefits. Learn more about lentil nutrition below!


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.

Nutty Goodness
Before buying red lentils from Bob's Red Mill, I had bought several store bought brands, and even filled bags from bulk containers. Often I would find small rocks, and one time even a metal staple mixed in with the other brands. With Bob's brand not only does it taste fresh and better than what I experienced in the past, I've found that I don't even have to wash the lentils or strain them. It's just a waste of time. There isn't any rocks or anything else. The quality control is superb!

Delicious red lentils
I love these red lentils, and as usual, Bob's Red Mill products are top quality. These lentils are flavorful full of fiber, protein, vitamins, and minerals. I love them in soup or cooked by themselves.

The red lentils are delicious. I left out the barley in the recipe on the back of the pkg., so it became red lentil soup--very delicious using all the other ingredients mentioned for red lentil stew..

Red lentils
Most lentils are sold in stores are brown in color but the red lentil has the sweeter nuttier taste with 22 grams protein, 10 grams fiber, 40 mg calcium, 6 mg iron, and 600mg potassium. It takes about 15-20 minutes to cook. Eat them by themselves or add to soup, stews or chill to make a salad.

This is a first. Never had Red Lentils but I tried the Lentil Tomato Salad from Bob's Red Mill Recipes. Haven't had Red Lentils at home so instead I used Brown Lentils which was also good but want to try it with Red Lentils too. The recipe of this salad is amazing.

These are absolutely the best tasting red lentils. They are large and retain
their germ sprout. So fast and easy to cook - no pressure cooker required.
Lost my usual supplier, so now buying direct from Bob's Red Mill web store.
Roberta G on Jun 20, 2018
Quality, easy to use product with a great recipe on the back for lentil stew (or delicious soup if you add a little more broth/stock.)

Lynn L on Nov 9, 2018
Is the nutritional information for the Red Lentils for cooked or dried lentils?
tae l on Jan 23, 2018
BEST ANSWER: The nutritional information is for the dry lentils.
I don't understand the large variances that I see for red lentils on different brands and online where the only ingredient is the lentils. The Red Mill package shows significantly higher fiber than any other nutritional data I've found. I'm comparing dry lentils for the same number of grams so it is an apples to apples comparison?
A shopper on Aug 29, 2018
BEST ANSWER: While we can't comment on other brands, we have each of our products analyzed by a certified 3rd party laboratory to make sure our nutritional data is as accurate as possible and specific to our products; the information is not based on averages, provided by suppliers, or compiled from general USDA or FDA data. The differences in nutritional information between our brand and other brands may be due to crop varieties, the serving size quantity (gram weight per serving) and other factors like this. Additionally, with agricultural products there can be slight nutritional variances between crops or lots of product that may account for discrepancies in data, and each nutritional label represents only one specific lot of product; values for fiber, carbohydrates, etc., can change with some lots being slightly higher and some slightly lower.
Are the lentils processed in a facility that processes wheat?
A shopper on Jul 19, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Hello! Yes, the Lentils are manufactured in a facility that also uses tree nuts, soy, wheat, and milk.
