Description

Legumes have been used throughout the earth for thousands of years. They come in hundreds of shapes, sizes and colors, are versatile and amazingly convenient because they can be dried and stored for years. Soaking beans for a couple of hours brings them back to life, activating enzymes, proteins, minerals and vitamins.

Beans can be eaten raw, sprouted or cooked, ground into flour, curdled into tofu, fermented into soya sauce, tempi and miso. They are excellent in chilies, soups and salads. Beans are high in iron and packed with protein. They are also a rich source of thiamin, riboflavin, niacin, potassium, phosphorus and an excellent source of fiber and complex carbohydrates. They are low in sodium and saturated fats.

  • Non-GMO

Allergen Warning: Processed in a facility that also handles wheat & soy.

Lentils are grown in rotation with wheat and or barley on the same farm ground.  Since lentils and wheat are more similar in size, it is possible that traces of wheat could be in lentils.

Directions

Cook using 3 cups of liquid (water, or stock of your choice) to 1 cup of dry lentils.  Be sure to use a large enough saucepan as the lentils will double, or triple in size. Bring to a boil, cover tightly, reduce heat and simmer until they are tender. Cook time for lentils is typically 15-20 minutes.
