Personal Wellness Benefits
- Packed with nutrients
Lentils are an excellent source of B vitamins, iron, magnesium, potassium, and zinc. They’re also a great source of plant-based protein and fiber.
- Rich in polyphenols and phytochemicals
Lentils are a great source of health-promoting polyphenols, which have strong antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties with potential cancer-cell inhibiting effects.
- Supports nutrient absorption
Lentils contain antinutrients such as trypsin inhibitors and phytic acid, which reduce the absorption of some nutrients. Soaking and cooking lentils will minimize these, but regardless, you will still absorb the majority of your nutrients.

1. How many servings can a cup of uncooked dried lentils make?
A cup of uncooked dried lentils doubles in size, so 1 cup serves two upon cooking.
2. Do you have instructions for steaming the brown lentils and for making them in an electric rice cooker?
Lentils.org says this: “Drain the water, rinse the lentils, and drain again. Using an electric steamer with a rice bowl (e.g. Oster brand), fill the water reservoir to the “max” or “full” line. Add lentils plus 2 cups water to the rice bowl. Assemble your steamer for cooking rice per the directions on the steamer.
