Because we strictly follow a WFPBNO diet, when my daughter traveled to Italy they brought us back Italian beans, lentils and limoncello.
The cooked lentils had such a great flavor that I searched on line for more from Italy. These are as good as the lentils they brought back.
Without oil or fat it’s difficult to add flavor to plain lentils with just herbs and veggies. These are good enough to eat with simple clean ingredients.
