The biggest advantage of the red lentil that is that it’s lean and peeled and is boiled way easier than the traditional brown lentil, beans or chickpeas. Red lentil is boiled for around 10-15 minutes and is very suitable for the days when we don’t have much time for cooking but want to eat something warm and satisfying.
