  • To begin, sort and rinse your lentils, then soak them in room temperature water overnight. This helps to soften the lentils and make them easier to cook. The next day, pour the cold water into a saucepan and add the soaked lentil. Put the saucepan on medium heat.

  • As the water comes to a boil, season with salt and reduce the heat to a low simmer. Skim off any foam that forms on the surface while the porridge is cooking. Stir the porridge occasionally to prevent the lentil from sticking to the bottom of the saucepan. Boil the porridge for about half an hour until the lentils are tender and have absorbed the water. Before serving, add the olive oil.


  • Green lentil porridge goes well with the fresh berries and multi-grain bread with curd cream cheese. If you eat this porridge for dinner, serve it with finely chopped dill and parsley, as well as a glass of low-fat yoghurt.

Bon Appetit!
