Prized Italian Lentils from Castelluccio

In the hills of southern Umbria, the Bartolini family have been growing olives, grains, and what they call pulses (legumes) since the 1850's. Their lentils are famous throughout Italy and beyond for their rich, nutty flavor, supple texture and ability to hold their shape after cooking. Plus these tiny pulses only take about 20–25 minutes to cook (hello quick meals!).

The prized pulses are beloved by chefs and home cooks alike (we even have some customers who buy them buy the case!). Our tip: Cook a big batch of lentils and use them for tasty, healthful meals all week long—add them to salads, sautés or make our vegetarian sheet pan dinner for Umbrian Lentils with Roasted Cauliflower, Carrots and Carrot Top Chimichurri.

Umbrian lentils were delicious

Luscious Lentils

I ordered the Umbrian Lentils for a recipe I saw in Milk Street magazine, and they were terrific. I am eager to use them in other dishes.

After visiting the Umbrian region of Italy last year, I bought these lentils to bring home. What a difference‼️Love them, they're the only lentils I'll be using going forward. So glad I found a site to purchase them, without the astronomical shipping costs of other companies.

Great lentils -- hold their shape

I purchased these to use in a main dish salad along with oven dried tomatoes and blue cheese. They worked out great, holding their shape and making for a wonderful dish.

Simply the Best

One of the healthiest foods you can make, these in particular are also the best tasting and highest quality! I use them for an old family recipe for lentil soup from Calabria where my Mother Albina was born. Whenever I make this hearty , substantial dish, I think of her, my grandmother and our family stories. The lentils cook up tender and rich but never muddied with a subtle exquisite flavor enhanced by the other ingredients. I can't recommend them more highly than to say they are the ONLY lentils I use when I make my family's soup!
