Final Notes for Cooking Green Lentils
➡️ Cooking green lentils is one of my favorite activities in the kitchen. Whether it’s red, green, or orange, I really like lentils, so I often cook recipes that include lentils as a main or secondary ingredient.
➡️ In general, cooking green lentils is very easy. This recipe is no exception and is therefore also recommended for beginner home cooks.
➡️ In Europe and North America, green lentils are served especially in the cold season, when people need more nutritious food. Cooking green lentils is a natural option in Europe and North America, as lentils allow you to make cheap and very nutritious food throughout the fall and winter.
➡️ The flavors in this lentil recipe are a mix of French and Hungarian spices and flavors. Green lentils are not as popular as dried beans in Hungary, however, there are recipes available with lentils, very similar to the one distributed on this site.
➡️ As mentioned above, the use of sour cream is completely optional, but I recommend topping the lentil stew with thick cream because it makes the food creamier and more delicious!
➡️ Lentils, whether they are red lentils or green lentils, are a perfect vegetable for cooking stew. This can be simple, in vegan style, or in combination with various types of meat, especially pork and beef, but also lamb. Hungarian-style lentil stew is one of the autumn recipes that I often use. The reason is that this stew is very nutritious and consistent and has an exceptional taste that goes well with many other meat dishes, especially pan-fried meat, roast, fried sausages and so on.
