Lentils may be the oldest cultivated legume in history. Archeological digs have produced artifacts dating lentils clear back to 8,000 to 7,000BC! Petite French Green Lentils are a bit spicy with a mottled, dark green appearance. They are the most intensely flavored of the lentil family and are prized by chefs for their rich, earthy flavor and hearty texture. They hold their shape when cooked and make a delicious side dish or a bed for entrees.
Though small in size, lentils are a nutritional all-star. They're rich in fiber and contain about a steak's worth of protein, making them a healthy meat substitute for vegetarians and vegans. Lentils are also packed with folate, iron, phosphorus and potassium.
Lentils work wonderfully in just about any kind of savory dish you want to create. Because they hold their shape while cooking, Petite French Green Lentils are perfect for salads and pilafs. . They are delicious added to soups, stews, dals, curries and chilis, and are fantastic as a meat substitute for wraps and veggie burgers. They're also quite tasty cooked by themselves and served over rice or mixed with other vegetables. See the back of our package for two satisfying gourmet recipes staring Petite French Green Lentils — Warm French Lentil Salad and French Lentil Soup.
