Sprouted black lentils cook very quickly, keep their shape (think “al dente”) and have a subtle taste that’s excellent at absorbing flavours. They are great in a variety of warm and cold dishes like salads and grain bowls, and hold up well in soups, stews and curries. Try replacing some or all of the meat for a sprouted black lentil bolognese sauce or lasagne.
We source our black lentils in Canada and sprout them to decrease their cook time to 5-10 minutes! You can find delicious recipes using sprouted black lentils here.
