Preparation and Usage

  • Easy to prepare
  • No need to pre-soak. Rinse and drain the lentils. Then put them in a saucepan and cover with 3x their volume of water (try using veggie stock and some white wine for extra flavour). Bring to the boil and simmer for 20-25 mins, until the lentils are firm to the bite. Drain and serve.
  • Get creative
  • For a healthy dinner: brown a couple of lamb shanks in a pan, and stew together with some cooked Puy Lentils and seasonal green veg. These lentils are also a fantastic base for quick, wholesome salads (hot or cold) and are delicious in tomatoey stews and cassoulets.

The best type of lentils - in my opinion

5 stars

They are tasty, keep their shape and freeze like a dream - ready for a quick lunch or dinner. Cook with stock, add to pre-cooked onion and garlic, add chilli, roasted peppers or anything else. Very versatile, eat with fish, pork, great for meat substitues as in cottage pie or veggie lasagne, cold in salads. Not many supermarkets sell dry Puy lentils which are easy to cook and much cheaper than the pre-cooked in pouches which I'm not very keen on.
