Product Information

PRODUCT INFO

Petite golden lentils have a bright golden color and a rounder-shape than most other lentil varieties. They have a mild, earthy flavor and a soft texture.

Golden lentils maintain their unusual shape during the cooking process better than some other varieties.

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.

STORAGE

Lentils should be stored in a cool, dry place until needed.

RECIPES & TIPS

As a group, lentils pair well with garlic, onions, vinegar (sherry or wine), mint, olive oil, citrus, and sausages. Petite golden lentils are ideal for thickening soups due to their tendency to break down when cooked.
