While still low in fat, but high in fiber and protein, Lentils differ from many other dry beans because they have a much shorter cooking time. Hurst’s® HamBeens® Confetti Lentils look great in the package, and taste even better when following this very simple recipe.

What you need:

6. Add the lentils and 8 cups of water to pot. Bring to a slow boil, then reduce the heat, cover, and simmer for 1- 1.5 hours.

7. The beans and vegetables should be completely tender, and some of the water should be reduced. If you prefer a more “brothy” soup, add water or beef stock until you reach desired consistency.

    The recipe looks good, but I’m having trouble personally with the photographs loading slowly (or not at all).

    I use these lentils all the time…I just leave out the beef and add Mrs. Dash spicy. De-li-cious!!!

    Why can’t I get lentils from your company at my local stores. the only one I get is the 15 bean soup. We love the lentil recipe.

      Hello, if you are unable to purchase one of our flavors, talk to one of the grocery managers and ask them to stock your favorite! They usually like getting feedback from their customers and will most likely order some of the product.

      Another option is to call our office and order a case directly from us. Call 1-800-HAMBEENS and we will ship right to you!

      Thanks
