Almanac - French Green Lentils
About this grain:
French Green Lentils (lentilles du Puy) are among the most sought after for their high protein content (25%) and their depth of flavour. These small, deep olive green and black speckled lentils contribute peppery notes perfect for stocks, sauces and salads.
Lentils (also known as pulses) are an essential contributor to regenerative agriculture. They use half the energy input of other crops such as wheat and fix nitrogen for improved soil health.
Sourced from certified organic growers.
