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 very good for salads.

Organic Green Lentils Benefits for Health

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 perfect 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 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 – filling and low in fats
  • lentil curry – a perfect complement for rice
  • lentils stew – tastes great with any spices and vegetables
  • lentil chili – low-fat & low-calorie alternative to regular 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 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!

This was an accidental purchase (meant to order French lentils) but I really like these. The lentils were large, fresh and good quality.
Perfect when we used in a soup recipe! Exactly as described and perfect for Lentil Soup Recipes!
Healthy and Hearty Lentil's. Great product!! Well worth it!! Item was as described. This product is good for all different uses. Great for vegetarians or vegans. Easy to cook. I would recommend this product.
Great for soups and other recipes. I really like these lentils. I've used them in two recipes so far - a lentil, cabbage soup and I just made plain lentils for a grain bowl. They are fresh and tasty.

The Incredible Green Lentil, Loaded with antioxidants, High quality protein, rich in fiber, iron, and manganese. I was surprised that these lentils were so clean. There is very little dust and virtually no foreign seeds or twigs. These lentils are great and have a savory peppery flavor. They are organic and these are the small green lentils that taste so good. They are easy to cook with a little water or stock and whatever else you like for a great meal. They are good with rice or potatoes and they make a great soup or stew. Just cook them with a little chicken, beef or vegetable stock. Because these little green lentils hold their shape so well after cooking they also make a great cold salad with some tomatoes and onions. You can also cook them with a small bit of liquid so they come out dry. Then you can blend them with a little sesame or olive oil and spices to taste and make a wonderful dip for veggies or rough chips. There are just so many way to fit these little guys into your food chain.
