Want to cook green or brown lentils without a recipe? All you need is this lentil to water ratio, which works every time.
- Place all ingredients in a large saucepan.
- Bring to a rapid simmer, then reduce the heat and simmer for about 20 to 25 minutes until the lentils are tender but still hold their shape. Drain any excess liquid. Add the salt and serve warm. (Storage info: Leftovers can be stored in the refrigerator; reheat on the stovetop.)
