Default Pink Lentils

Anyone have any recipes for pink lentils as a side dish? They are just like the black ones, just quick cooking. Which is good for me, I'm too impatient to wait for an hour to cook the other ones.

I want to start eating them, but can't find any good recipes!

i have a great lentils recipe.... ok - in a pot- pour in the lentils, cover with hot water and put on stove to begin to boil. add in some olive oil, and minced garlic-- season with salt and pepper or I personally like Tony's. I have ever tried it with the pink lentils-- but I would imagine it was the same --just shorter period of cooking! I cook mine until the are mushy and kinda have the texture of refried beans.... and when I serve- to make it different at times I add a dollup of sour cream on top.

Let me know if you ahve any questions.

Good Luck!

I love lentils. My favorite is an indian preparation. Finely chop an onion and saute it in cooking spray until lightly browned. Add your lentils, water/stock and bring to a boil. Throw in a few slices of ginger (which have to be removed at the end), some tumeric, cumin and salt, and simmer away until the lentils are done (you may need to add more water). Remove the ginger and adjust seasoning as desired. The best thing is the final flourish, which you could skip if you are averse to final flourishes, but I find it the best part. Heat a small amount of olive oil (or ghee, if you have it) in a small saute pan, then throw in chopped garlic and cumin seeds. Allow the garlic to brown and then pour the oil, the garlic and the cumin seeds into the lentils and stir. Voila, delicious! I always garnish with fresh, chopped cilantro. Yum!
