Want to learn how to make roasted lentils? Here’s an easy way to make delicious crunchy lentils (sweet or savory) that are perfect for a high protein, high fiber snack!



1 cup cooked lentils

spray oil



  1. Spread 1 cup of cooked lentils on a paper towel. Let them dry for an hour or so. Transfer to a baking sheet and spray lightly with oil.
  2. Add seasonings. For a sweet version I like to use 1/2 tsp sugar and 1/2 tsp cinnamon. For a savory version use whatever spices you like – I’ve done cayenne pepper and paprika, curry powder, garlic powder and salt, etc.
  3. Roast at 300 degrees F, stirring every 10-15 min, for 40-45 min.
  4. Let cool.
  5. Add to trail mix, salads etc or snack on them by the handful!



You could probably do 2 cups of cooked lentils on a large baking sheet at one time but I wouldn’t recommend more than that or you’ll crowd the pan and they won’t get crispy!
