Red split lentils

Red lentils are a variety as ancient as the earth in which they grow, the cradle of great civilisations that have perfected its cultivation over the centuries.

AMÍO split red lentils are skinless, and so they reach a creamy consistency within a few minutes of cooking.

Lentils are a great alternative to animal protein, especially if combined with cereals. In addition to their attractive colour and delicious taste, they are a valuable source of protein, carbohydrates and mineral salts, as can be seen in the daily reference intake (RI%).

Suggestions for use

These lentils do not require soaking. However, we recommend rinsing them in cold water before placing them in a pot with 500ml of water for each 100g of lentils.

Allow around 70g per person: bring to a boil before covering and cooking on a low heat for 8-10 min.

Once cooked, add salt for flavour and to prevent the lentils becoming hard and crunchy.
