The nutritional value of lentils remains almost the same regardless of their type, so the only real differences between them are flavors. Note that colors also indicate how well the legume will keep shape when cooked. Green lentils take a bit longer to cook and retain their firm texture. They are perfect for salads. Remember that lentil chips or split lentils cook very fast and don’t hold their shape regardless of type.

Organic French Green Lentils Health Benefits

Various health organizations advise consuming 1-2 servings of legumes per day as this helps promote the health of your cardiovascular and digestive systems. Lentils, in particular, are one of the best choices as they are low in calories and high in nutrients. There are many types of lentils, including, beluga, puy, yellow, green, and red. They differ a little in flavor and firmness when cooked, but their nutritional value is almost the same.

One of the most significant lentils benefits is their high nutritional value as opposed to low-calorie count. These legumes contain about 20 grams of carbs in a ½ cup of cooked seeds, but they are offset by 8 grams of dietary fiber, which slows down their absorption. Therefore, you can include lentils in a low-carb diet.

The lentils protein content is also an important benefit of this food as it’s the richest source of amino acids among legumes. They are ideal for vegans, vegetarians, bodybuilders, and everyone else who wants to get more protein without consuming many calories and fats. You’ll need to eat lentils and rice (brown) to ‘complete’ amino acid chains as all plant proteins are ‘incomplete.’ However, they are easier to digest than meat.

Ways to Enjoy Organic French Green Lentils

Lentils don’t require pre-soaking so that you can cook them very fast. It’s what gives them a significant advantage over other legumes.

Cook rinsed lentils in broth or water using about 3 cups of liquid per every cup of lentil beans. Bring to a boil, cover the pan, and let simmer until they are tender. Add salt at the very end.

As lentils have a mild flavor, they can be included in almost any type of dish. The best ways to enjoy them is to make: lentil soup, lentil curry, lentils stew, lentil chili.

You can also make your lentil flour, which is gluten-free and very nutritious. Use it to make lentil crackers, cookies, or add it to protein shakes. Be sure to try some lentil pasta as well, because it’s delicious and much healthier than wheat.

If you are into sprouting, buy whole seeds to grow lentil sprouts and add them to salads, sandwiches, stews, and green smoothies.

How to Sprout Organic French Green Lentils at Home

  1. Yields approximately 3 Cups (1/2 lb.) of Sprouts. Prep 3 Tablespoons of lentils, then transfer into a bowl or into your Sprouter. Add 2-3 times as much cool (60°-70°) water. Mix lentils up to assure even water contact for all.
  2. Allow lentils to soak for 6-12 hours. Empty the lentils into your Sprouter (if necessary). Drain off the soak water. Rinse thoroughly with cool (60°-70°) water. Drain thoroughly! Set your Sprouter anywhere out of direct sunlight and at room temperature (70° is optimal) between Rinses. Ensure sufficient air-circulation is provided.
  3. Always be sure to Drain very thoroughly. The most common cause of inferior sprouts is inadequate drainage. Rinse and Drain again every 8-12 hours for 3 days.

Enjoy your home-made sprouts!

I love the French green lentils. All I had to do is simmered it for 30 minutes and I was done. It very tasty when you put the spices you want. It is rich in flavor and taste. I already ordered my next shipping for the lentils.
Excellent lentils. I lived in France for several years and these lentils are just like I could buy there, only labelled organic as well! These cook perfectly, flavor is sweet and texture firm enough to hold their shape and not turn to mush. I'm so happy to have found these!

Food to love! French lentils are tiny gems of the legume world; they cook in 20 minutes, taste delicious and are a great source of fiber and protein. French lentils are hard to find in my local grocery stores, so I tried ordering the 'Food to Live' brand from Amazon. They arrived quickly, are great quality, and the resealable five pound bag will keep me cooking for months.

Great Value! Product came as described. I recently used these lentils for a InstaPot recipe (pressure cooked, no slow cook) and they turned out amazing. Highly suggest - organic foods at a good value.
Lovely Lentils. These lentils are very tasty and fresh. They are the star in French lentil and carrot soup. Have a slight snap to them, not mushy and tasteless. Will definitely continue to order.
