Organic Brown Lentils

About Brown Lentils

Many vegetarian and vegan recipes use brown lentils as a nourishing and useful filler. As well as being naturally low in fat and sugar, they are high in protein and dietary fibre. In addition to absorbing the flavors of the surrounding ingredients, these brown lentils are versatile in a wide variety of sweet and savoury dishes. These are great for hot and cold dishes, especially hearty hotpots, soups, stews, and even salads in the summer.

Uses for Brown Lentils

Cook these beauties by adding 1 cup of lentils to 4 cups of boiling water, covering, and simmering until tender. This dish takes approximately 20-25 minutes to cook, which gives you plenty of time to prep all other ingredients. In the kitchen, brown lentils can be used as a substitute for meat. The seeds add nutrients and protein to summer salads and a hearty wholefood element to soups, stews, Indian curries, and even traditional shepherd's pie. Using your brown lentils, you can combine them with a variety of herbs and spices to make a puree that can accompany an antipasti platter or can be used as filling for wraps and sandwiches.
