What

Organic French Green Lentils (also known as Puy lentils) are different from most other lentils as they hold their shape well once cooked. They are a tiny, lens-shaped seed of a small shrub. They are about 1/2cm wide and have a mild earthy flavour. They are vegan and wheat-free.

Served Best

They are a great choice for winter soups, salads, curries, pilafs, stuffing and stir-fries. Mix with breadcrumbs and use to stuff peppers or eggplant. They’re also great in salads and soups or add garlic and thyme for a delicious side dish!

How To Cook

Cook on a stovetop, using 3 cups of liquid (water, stock, etc) to 1 cup of dry lentils. Be sure to use a large enough saucepan as the lentils will double or triple in size. Bring to a boil, cover tightly, reduce heat and simmer until they are tender. Cook time is typically 15-20 minutes.
