Organic French Green lentils: Rich in Flavor and Texture

Organic French Green Lentils are a rare type of lentil which is smaller and firmer than the regular green. They were first grown in France, and today they are a popular ingredient in many European dishes. French Organic Lentils are extremely versatile as a cooking ingredient, so you can use them in many dishes originating from all over the world.

Organic French Lentils from Food to Live are smaller than green lentils and dark-brown in color. They take a bit longer to cook but this is because their texture is different, which is why they can remain firm when cooked. Eating lentils regularly is beneficial in many ways not only because they are delicious and low in calories., but also because they are an excellent plant-based source of protein, fiber, B vitamins, and some essential minerals.

How to Eat Organic French Green Lentils

You can cook organic French lentils in bulk and store them in the fridge for a week or longer. Add cooked lentils to salads or hummus, or mix them with some beans, onion and spices to make veggie burgers. French organic lentils can also be used in light soups where the firm texture of the legume is prominent.

Organic French lentils taste amazing in chilies and stews. As they retain their shape instead of turning mushy, they can help define the taste of some familiar dishes. The peppery flavor of the lentils provides an interesting addition to many savory recipes.

Organic French lentils do not need to be soaked before cooking. Simply rinse them, bring to the boil, and simmer for 20-30 minutes. Add seasoning at the end of the cooking process.

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.
