    The green lentil is pale brown in colour, shiny and flat. They are France’s lentilles blondes and they are popular in many countries worldwide. In France they are often served simply with butter. In the Middle East olive oil is substituted for butter, and when the lentils are served with rice, they can constitute a meal of complete protein. Be careful when cooking lentils as they can disintegrate if not watched.

  • Directions

    In a large pot, bring 3 cups water (per 1 cup lentils) to a boil. Add lentils and simmer partly covered for about 45 minutes; check for tenderness after 18-20 minutes. To retain firmness, try adding a teaspoon of oil to the water before adding the lentils.

  • Uses

    Try using green lentils in soups, various vegetarian dishes, or sprouted for added nutrition.

  • Storage

    When stored in a cool (preferably less than 60˚F) and dry location (less than 65% humidity), shelf life is approximately 12 months.
