French Green Lentils from Le Puy

If imitation is the most sincere form of flattery, then authentic Lentils du Puy are a very admired legume. French authorities realized this and so bestowed AOP status to the true green lentils of Le Puy-en-Velay, France. But this hasn't stopped imitators the world over from cranking out a product that looks quite similar . . . buyer, beware!

Authentic, slate-green Puy lentils are grown in the volcanic, mineral-rich soil of the Auvergne region in southern central France. They are packed with heart-healthy iron, potassium, calcium, folate and magnesium (to name just a few), and are also chock-full of fiber and lean protein, which release a slow-burning energy that keeps you going all day long.

Their taste and texture set them apart too; they hold their shape beautifully after cooking and their nutty, earthy, vegetal flavor really bursts in the mouth. Use these French green lentils in both hot and cold preparations—add to hearty soups, toss into salads or try our recipe for Lentil Ragù with Poached Eggs, Chilies & Mint .

Awesome

These are definitely worth 'MAIL ORDERING' -- you can't get them in any local stores here. Made a lentil stew (potatoes, tomatoes, carrots, onion, garlic and lots of spices) -- these lentils are totally wonderful -- my favorite of all lentils.

These Are So Yummy!!!

These are the best lentils I have ever had. I simply cook up a batch and season with salt pepper. They are so flavorful! The cooking instructions are on the box - basically a one to three ratio of lentils to water and they cook up in about 20 mins.

Lentils of Terroir

These lentils really are worth it, and as one reviewer said, there is a difference. We like these in the winter, cooked with some carrots, onion, Roma tomatoes, thyme and chicken apple sausages - and the taste makes you think you're in an old farmhouse in central France, near Le Puy (also known for its handmade lace).

Wonderfully nutty, amazing texture

I didn't think this lentil could live up to all the hype. After all, it's just a lentil. Boy...was I wrong. They're nutty, full of flavor and stay firm after cooking. They deserve all the hype. I'm a believer.

We found this lentil wonderful as a side dish served with warmed goat cheese. We've also added it to the Bartolini Umbrian lentils for a delicious soup. Lentils don't get better than this...nutty, rich, delicious.
