Is it okay to freeze cooked lentils?

Made a batch of lentils for tostadas and have enough left for another meal or two. If I freeze them will they be okay?

    I do it all the time with many different kinds of lentils. Go for it :)

      In a word, yes.

      I made some lentil soup last week and froze the leftover. I defrosted it yesterday and it was as good if not better than the original. The lentils were still intact and not mushy at all.
