French Green Lentils
Known for their sturdy texture, short cook time, and beautiful deep-green color, French Green Lentils are often regarded as the most sought-after and delicate of all lentil varieties.
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.
