Hi! I use lentils in my cooking. I precook them and keep in the fridge then add them to my crockpot recipes 30 minutes before serving just to heat them up. HTH

PS There is a yummy tomato/vegetable lentil soup recipe on the spark page recipes page called Rustic Tomato Lentil soup.

That's what I do with my navy beans. I soak them overnight then I cook them in a crock pot for 8 hours. I normally make bean soup crock pot style. Yummy. emoticon emoticon

Thank you for that. The challenge with lentils is that they don't require soaking like beans. In the pressure cooker they only take 15-20 minutes, and on the stove only 20-30. I don't know if they would cook in a crock pot, except I know people make lentil soup in crock pots.

I haven't made any lentil soup yet, but I've found a lot of recipes right here on SP.

Katie,

Sorry, I haven't made them either.

-1- I found this online:
"The advantage of using a crock pot is that you can put the food in it, turn it on and forget it. Several hours later, the dish is ready to eat. But beans do not cook that simply in a crock pot. The Low setting is too low, lengthening the cooking time to 16 to 20 hours. And depending upon the age of the beans and the hardness of the water, the beans may not cook at all! If you cook beans on the High settling, a large amount of cooking liquid evaporates. You'll have to watch the crock pot to be sure the beans stay covered with liquid. If you want to experiment with your crock pot, try cooking soaked beans for 2 or 3 hours on High, making sure they are constantly covered by liquid. When they are just tender, turn the heat setting to Low and let them cook 6 to 8 hours longer. During these last 6 to 8 hours the beans wont need any special attention." The source for above is:

es/147070.html


-2- Someone else said you could cook the lentils on high for two hours, then on low for about 8 hours, making sure they are well covered in water.

-3- Still another person said you should soak overnight before cooking in the crockpot.

Good luck!

Take care,
Vivian

Has anyone made lentils in a slow cooker? (I'm not talking about lentil soup.) How did you adjust the liquid and cooking time? What heat did you use?
