Some people seem confused about the desired consistency of red lentils. Unlike the brown or green lentils that most of us are used to, red lentils have had their husks removed. This is why they cook so quickly. This also means that THEY WILL NATURALLY DISINTIGRATE INTO A PUREE. If you don't like this "mushy" texture, then you should probably stick to lentils that still have their seed coats.
All lentils are a great health food with lots of vitamins and fiber and huge amounts of iron and protein, making them especially important for vegetarians. I would give Bob's 5 stars if they were organic. I'm also a little puzzled about 27 oz being chosen as a unit size. But you can't argue with super saver shipping!
1 cup lentils...boiled in 4 cups water (bring to boil, then turn to simmer)
One half onion and 3-4 cloves garlic, sautéed (makes a big difference if you sautée them before adding!)
One 6oz can tomato paste
1 tsp cayenne pepper -- leave this out if you are a spice wimp
1 tsp garam masala
1 tsp salt
2 packets truvia (or sugar, or whatever you like)
1 tsp ginger
1 tbsp paprika
Then just let it all simmer for up to 35 min. Cool it a bit before you taste it. Add what you think is necessary (sometimes I add more sugar/truvia to balance out the spicy and the acidity from the tomato)
Now, that mush is surprisingly tasty, and I wouldn't be surprised if you spiced them up and added some flour and eggs for structure and strength that you could turn them into delicious vegetarian patties for burgers. But if you like lentils with some toothsome feel and visible structure, then you might be happier with a different variety, or a different brand of red lentils than Bob's.
This 4-pack comes in a large box--be careful when cutting it open so as not to pierce the 4 inner bags.
