French Green Lentils
French Green Lentils are a rare and highly sought-after, deep green variety of lentils, the lens-shaped legumes known for their quick-cooking nature and high protein content.
Carefully sort lentils and rinse thoroughly. Bring 4 cups water to boil in saucepan. Slowly stir in 1 cup lentils. Reduce heat to a simmer. Cook until lentils are still firm but cooked through. Do not overcook about 25 minutes. Drain lentils and rinse with cold water. Season with salt. Refrigerate until serving.
Storage & handling
Store in a cool, dry place.
A deceptively simple lentil salad bursts with flavor when prepared with our peppery French Green Lentils, fruity olive oil and just-tender sautéed vegetables. This classic Parisian salad is rendered even more elegant by the addition of creamy goat cheese as a garnish.
