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

There are no end-of-year celebrations without lentils. It is Italian tradition that they bring good luck (lentils look like coins). I've tried other lentils, but the Bartolini ones are the best, like when I was in Italy!

Since I started cooking with Bartolini's Umbrian Lentils, my husband will not eat any other kind. My local grocery hasn't stocked them for ages, so I was overjoyed to find a source in Market Hall. I make divine lentil soup and scrumptious lentil salad (great in this hot weather!) with these. Other lentils become mushy; these do not, and they taste just great!
