Make a Hummus with them. Wisk in a mini-prep food processor with lemon juice, olive oil, and tahani.
Use on sandwiches. Good whole wheat bread, alfalfa sprouts, tomatoes, avocado and Hummus is a great sandwich. (add a little oil and lemon juice and salt and pepper to the sprouts and tomatoes).

Hummus also freezes very well, but it rarely lasts that long around here to be an issue.

Lentils are usually good with some garlicky sausages.

Vinaigrette, veggies, lentils = a very nice salad. They they will keep much longer!
And if you don't want to do any of these things right away, make 1 or 2 cup portions and freeze them.
