Description

Organic Green Lentils are versatile and tasty.

Organic Green Lentils are bright green and cook quickly and evenly without getting mushy. They are high in vegetarian protein so are a good addition to vegetarian and vegan recipes.

Green lentils can take the place of meat in a range of traditional recipes and give a great texture.  They have a mild flavour and soft texture so they go well in casseroles and stews.  One 90g serving is a source of Thiamin (B1), Potassium, Phosphorus, Manganese, Iron and Copper.

If you haven’t tried cooking with these lentils before you could start by trying our vegetable and lentil soup recipe.

If you like these lentils but want to try a new variety or combine different types together we also stock organic brown lentilsorganic red lentilsorganic beluga lentils and Organic French style lentils.

Note: Requires soaking and cooking or sprouting before consumption.

Cooking Instructions:

  1. Lentils don’t require pre-soaking before you cook them but soaking them will reduce their phytate content.
  2. Rinse the lentils first to remove any natural dust or debris.
  3. Fill a pan with 3 cups of liquid to 1 cup of lentils – the lentils will triple in size so use a large pan.
  4. Boil and cover, reducing the heat to a simmer and then cook until tender (15-20 mins)
  5. Add salt at the end of cooking – adding it during cooking will result in tough lentils.

Family Tip:

  1. The great thing about lentils is they don’t require pre-soaking before you cook them but soaking them will reduce their phytate content.
  2. Once cooked these whole green lentils hold their shape more than split lentils so go well in braised lentil dishes or to bulk up soups and broths.
  3. We like adding lentils to our vegetarian meals to make sure we get some quality protein.
