French Green Lentils
Choose 10 or 60 lbs
French green lentils (verte du puy in French) are one of the harder to find varieties. They are prized for their deep green color, ability to hold their shape, and high fiber content.
The lentil, a dried seed of a small shrub, is an ancient staple in southern Asia that has been consumed for over 8,000 years. Besides possessing a mild earthy flavor of their own, lentils take on flavors well and have extremely high levels of protein (26%) and iron. When mixed with grains (traditionally rice) on the same plate, the resulting meal provides complete plant-based protein.
Lentils should be stored in a cool, dry place until needed.
