How To Cook Brown Lentils On The Stove

Cooking lentils in a pot on the stove is fairly easy as it requires only a few steps. Lentils are one of the ingredients used in the Zero-Waste Vegan Meal Plan.



1 cup (200 g) dry brown lentils
1 and 3/4 cups of water
1 bay leaf


  1. Measure the lentils and pick out any debris or little stones.
  2. Place them in a pot and add the water.
  3. Add the bay leaf and stir.
  4. Bring to a boil and lower the heat to a low simmer.
  5. Keep the lid on the pot until the lentils have absorbed all the water. This will take about 1 hour and 15 minutes.
  6. Transfer the lentils to an airtight container and wait until it reaches room temperature before placing them in the fridge
