Product Description

Lentils are legumes that have been cultivated for thousands of years. According to some archeological findings, people have included them in their diet as far back as 13,000 years ago. Today lentils remain a popular food due to their extremely high nutritional value.

There are many types of this crop cultivated today. Whole French lentils are one of the most popular and healthiest of them.

Health Benefits

Whole French lentils improve your overall health significantly and reduce the risk of developing many diseases because they provide your body with many essential elements.

  • Dietary fiber.
    A single cup of cooked lentils contains 16 grams of dietary fiber. This is 63% of the required daily dose, according to the recommendations of the U.S. Department of Agriculture. Fiber promotes the overall health of your digestive system. This includes reducing the risk of colon cancer.
  • Folate.
    Folate, also known as folic acid or vitamin B9, is an important element that supports our nervous system. It plays an essential part in the synthesis of RNA, DNA, and red blood cells. Folate deficiency increases the risk of cancer and heart disease. It’s imperative for pregnant women to consume large amounts of this vitamin as taking 600 micrograms of it a day can reduce the risk of birth defects. A cup of lentils offers 358 micrograms of folate.
  • Iron.
    Iron plays an important part in the production of red blood cells and adenosine triphosphate (ATP). It’s necessary for maintaining your overall health. Women require more of the element, especially when they are pregnant. A cup of cooked French lentils provides 87% of the daily dose of iron for men and 38% for women.
  • Protein.
    According to the Harvard School of Public Health, lentils, and legumes in general, are a better source of protein because they have a lower content of saturated fats. French lentils provide you with 36 grams of protein (from 1 cup of lentils).

    Great product! I’ve ordered it three times. The only issue has been that each order has had more packaging. The first order came in a large woven bag, the second in individual 10lb bags, and the third in individual bags each packed in a cardboard box (pre-packaged for 10lb orders?) I’ll definitely consider purchasing again, but it’d be ideal if it could be shipped with less packaging. Thank you!

Protein Power Lentils & Amaranth Patties

Ingredients

  • 1 cup red lentils
  • ½ cup amaranth
  • ½ cup chopped fresh parsley
  • 1 onion, diced
  • 2 Tbsps ground flax seeds + 3 Tbsps water (or one large egg)
  • 4 Tbsps nutritional yeast
  • ½ cup breadcrumbs
  • some sliced black olives (optional, but recommended)
  • salt and ground pepper, to taste
  • some oil


Instructions

  1. Mix the ground flax and water in a small bowl and set aside for 5 minutes to thicken.
  2. Add red lentils and amaranth in a pot. Cover with water and boil for 15 minutes. Strain them.
  3. Put them in a large bowl and blend in all the other ingredients, except oil. If the composition is too moist, add more breadcrumbs. The patties should be easy to form.
  4. Heat some oil in a non-stick frying pan.
  5. Make the patties – 1 Tbsps per patty.
  6. Fry them 2 minutes on each side.
  7. Put the amaranth patties on a plate covered with a paper towel, in order to absorb all excess oil.
