Organic sprouted green lentils are extremely nutritious and versatile. They are an excellent source of protein, fibre, iron, magnesium and zinc. In fact, one serving offers 12g of protein, 25% of your daily iron, and 46% of your daily fibre! They have a tender texture and subtle taste.
These green lentils have been through a slow soaking and sprouting period, so no pre-soaking is needed. This improves their digestibility, enhances their taste and texture, and reduces their cook time to just 10 minutes. These little powerhouses are an excellent choice for quick and simple meals, and work well as a meat replacement. Like other pulses, they cook by simply boiling in water.
They keep their shape and have a subtle taste that’s excellent at absorbing flavours. They are great in salads and tabouleh, and hold up well in soups, stews, casseroles, side dishes and curries. Try them in a traditional Indian lentil dahl, or you can even mash them for a nutritious sprouted veggie burger or vegetarian meatloaf. Sprouted green lentils are especially delicious with aromatics like garlic and onion, and with a wide range of spices. You can find recipes here.
