Organic French Green Lentils
Smaller than regular green lentils, our Organic French Green Lentils have a distinct peppery flavor that adds interest to dips and pairs well with meats, and they hold their shape well when cooked in soups and stews. Lentils don't require soaking, so they're perfect for busy weeknights. An excellent source of protein and fiber.
