We source our green lentils in Canada and sprout them to enhance taste and texture, and decrease their cook time to just 10 minutes. They are an excellent source of protein, fibre, iron, magnesium and zinc. In fact, one serving is 48% of your daily recommended fibre!
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 and curries. Sprouted green lentils are especially delicious with aromatics like garlic and onion, and with a wide range of spices.

Storage & Shelf Life
After sprouting, we carefully dry the beans back down to their shelf stable moisture levels. This means you can store them as you would store unsprouted beans – in a cool, dry place.
Once you cook your sprouted pulses, they should be stored in an air-tight container in the fridge.
Shelf life: 18 months
