Green Lentils Puy Style

About

These green puy style lentils sourced from Canada provide a robust flavour and texture to meals. They are quick to cook within 30 minutes and they are rich in nutrients including dietary fibre, protein and some important minerals. Green puy style lentils can be used in a similar way to brown lentils, however some would argue that they provide more flavour. They hold their shape well when cooking, which makes them versatile in many sweet and savoury dishes.

Uses

Since these lentils remain whole when cooked, they are a lovely protein-rich and filling addition to wraps, burritos, tacos and salads. They are also a great inclusion in vegetable patties and fritters, as well as vegetarian alternatives to classic dishes like this Shepherd’s Pie. Green puy style lentils are a tasty addition to veggie soups, stews and curries. As with most other beans and pulses, you can puree green lentils to make a flavoursome and nourishing dip for addition to your antipasti platters when entertaining, or simply to add a dollop to your Buddha Bowls. Remember that when you’re cooking your lentils don’t add salt, as this will interfere with the outer layer of the lentil and cause it to become tough, which might not be so pleasant to eat.
