Peanuts, Pine Nuts, Sesame Seeds and Rice are all seeds.

Walnuts are nuts.

Lentils are beans.

I currently have lentils and rice in my pantry.

Peanuts and lentils are legumes; therefore are classified as beans. Sesame seeds, pine nuts, and rice are seeds, most definitely. Walnuts; now it gets sticky. Walnuts are technically seeds (drupe)from the walnut tree. However, cooks classify them as nuts, along with Pistachios, cashews, pecans, and the like (all drupes).

They're classified differently based on structure, but they're all seeds.

I'm out of sesame seeds right now, but have all the rest.

I was with "Tena" above but now I am with "lora" above!!
I love them all but am allergic to sesame so none of that one for me.

This is a tricky one, but here goes...

Pine nuts-seed
Sesame seeds-seed

I have everything but lentils.

Peanut is a species in the legume family making them a bean.
Pine nut and walnut are nuts from trees.
Lentils are legume.
Sesame seeds are seeds.
Rice is a grain.
I have all in my pantry.
Have a good week. Suze

I have them all in my pantry, but I'm not sure about rice!

Sesame seed...seed
pine nut...seed

I have all in my pantry. Though the walnuts, pine nuts and sesame seed are in the fridge. The brown rice is in the freeezer-white, jasmine and basmati and sticky are in the pantry.
