Bulk Larry’s Market Organic Green Lentils, Whole per 100g
The green lentil is pale brown in colour, shiny and flat. Grown in Canada, green lentils are know in France as lentilles blondes and are also 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.
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.
Try using green lentils in soups, various vegetarian dishes, or sprouted for added nutrition.
When stored in a cool (preferably less than 60˚F) and dry location (less than 65% humidity), shelf life is approximately 12 months.
