They will be lovely - but won't go to mush like red ones do. They will keep their shape.

is there any thing you could suggest to thicken it up slightly?

I find, if you cook them long enough they do go slightly mushy and are much much nicer than red lentils.

Maybe liquidise once cooked? Green lentils are yummy - take a little longer to cook though.
