Description

OliveNation Organic French Green Lentils have a deep green color with a mild, earthly flavor. Because of their origin in the rich volcanic soil of the Puy region of France, they are also known as Puy lentils. French green lentils are high in fiber and protein, with a strong peppery flavor and firm texture. They hold their shape during cooking, which makes them a great ingredient in winter soups, stews, as well as in Middle Eastern cuisine. Make French Lentil Soup, using carrots, onions, celery and spices. Serve this hearty soup with warm, buttery French bread for a delicious and nutritious meal. You can serve French green lentils with couscous, mix them with olive oil and bread crumbs to stuff tomatoes, or bell peppers or toss chilled lentils with arugala in salads.

How to Cook Organic French Green Lentils

Unlike other dried beans, French green lentils do not need to be soaked before cooking. However, since these lentils take longer to cook, soaking for 1-2 hours will help to reduce cooking time.

    delightful!

    Posted by Kristine on Dec 27th 2015

    I began using French green lentils years ago but was not able to buy anymore as the one store I found them in no longer carried them. Searching on the internet brought me to Olive Nation where I had purchased other products before. These lentils are exceptional. They have a wonderful flavor no mater how I cook them. They hold their shape which is very nice whether in soup or as a side dish. These are the best lentils and even my picky kids like them! The free shipping is very nice and makes these a great bargain.

    The best lentils for soups

    Posted by Kris on Dec 27th 2015

    I purchased these lentils after searching on the web for an organic French green lentil. A friend of mine who grew up in France recommended them to me as the best lentils. Well she was right. The texture even after cooking is firm yet soft, dont lose their shape. The flavor is earthy and delightful. These make the best lentil soup I have ever made. With the free shipping I could never get a better deal.

    Italian lentil salad

    Posted by Shirley on Sep 1st 2014

    I used these French lentils to make Giada de Laurentis Italian lentil salad (with grapes hazelnuts peppers cucumbers scallions etc.) as a bed for roasted salmon fillets. It was perfect! The lentils were warm and the salmon was hot. The quality of the dried lentils was excellent. I am glad to find a source also for flageolets dried faves and more.

    French Green Lentil Soup

    Posted by Elizabeth on Mar 31st 2014

    The French green lentils were delicious in a warm lentil soup I made using a recipe by Ina Gardner. Their texture was perfect as they stayed firm and didnt turn mushy. They also made this soup look pretty and appetizing and they brought a peppery flavor which we loved! Would definitely buy them again.
