Green Lentils

(1 customer review)


Green lentils are one of the earliest domesticated crops in the world. They have a brown/green colour and a rich earthy flavour. They are a great source of protein and fibre as well as many micro-nutrients including B group vitamins, manganese, phosphorus, magnesium, copper and zinc.


Green lentils have traditionally been used as a base for soups and curries and also make a great addition to salads.

Cooking tips:

  • Before cooking thoroughly rinse the lentils to remove dust and other debris.
  • Bring 3 cups of liquid (water, stock, etc.) for each cup of lentils to the boil, cover and simmer for about 30 minutes or until desired texture is reached.
  • Green lentils will increase up to three times in size while cooking so ensure that a large enough saucepan is used.
  • Do not season with salt until after cooking otherwise lentils will become tough.
