Lentils are a type of legume that are commonly used in plant-based cooking. They are small, lens-shaped seeds that come in a variety of colors including green, brown, red, and black. Lentils are a rich source of protein, fiber, carbohydrates, and essential vitamins and minerals.
The rice cooker does not require any manually release of pressure and can be left in the pot on warm setting for several hours.
Add lentils, water, and salt if using, to the inner pot of the rice cooker.
Set the rice cooker to the '"saute" then simmer mode' or 'grain' mode and click start. Allow the rice cooker to run through the full cook cycle.
Once ready, serve warm or cold or refrigerate for up to 5 days or freeze for later.
