List of Ingredients

Lentils, mature seeds, raw

Yellow lentils have a sweet and nutty flavor, are a tasty, robust and versatile lentil.  Yellow lentils go well with vegetables, especially sweeter ones like pumpkin, squash, zucchini and carrots.  They are excellent soups, side dishes and purees.  

Yellow or golden lentils are the most popular legume in India and are known there as Channa Dal.

They are nutritious, easy to digest, and have a low rating on the glycemic index making it a great choice for diabetics.

These tiny lentils are indigenous to Syria and have been eaten for over 8,000 years.  Lentils are the seed of a small shrub and have been a staple food for many South Asian cultures.

They have a mild, earthly flavor and soft texture.  Lentils are one of the few legumes not to presoak. 

The quick cooking and nutritious nature of lentils make them an obvious choice for winter soups. They're delicious in chilled vegetable salads, or mix with bread crumbs, minced onion and garlic to stuff roasted red peppers or eggplant.

They cook in about 30 minutes without soaking.
