Petite Crimson Lentils
Choose 10 or 60 lbs
The brightly colored petite crimson lentil has a mild, earthy flavor and soft texture when cooked. Though it may lose its shape, this lentil is one of the faster cooking varieties available.
The lentil, the 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.
