Organic Split Red Lentils
Our quick-cooking Organic Split Red Lentils are ideal for dips and soups because they break down the longer they cook, resulting in a creamy, satisfying, protein-rich dish. The mildly sweet and nutty flavor goes especially well with Indian-style cuisines such as dal and curries. Like other lentils, they are an excellent source of protein and fiber.
