Petite Crimson Lentils

 Product Weight/ Price:

Petite Crimson Lentils

They have about 1/3 the size of regular lentils. The outer shell is removed and they cook up in about 4-6 minutes without soaking. Versatile for thickening soups, sauces and gravies as a puree.

Petite Crimson Lentil Soup, Salad, and Garnish

Petite Crimson Lentils have been decorticated (seed coat removed) which makes them cook very quickly. To retain shape, cook only 4 to 6 minutes. For golden puree for soup, cook for 20 minutes. Before cooking, pick over lentils.
Do not rinse or presoak.

As a soup...
1 cup Petite Crimson Lentils
2 cups chicken, beef, or vegetable bouillon
2 cups chopped fresh vegetables of your choice

Put all ingredients in a large pot, bring to a boil, reduce heat, and simmer for 20 min., stirring often. When vegetables are tender, add salt and pepper to taste and serve piping hot.

As a garnish...
Cover with water, bring to a boil, and simmer for 4-6 minutes. Drain. Use as a garnish in baked potatoes, fish or meat dish.

As a salad...
Cook as above, adding 1 teaspoon of lemon juice to cooking water (to help retain color). Drain and mix with your favorite salad dressing and fresh parsley. Try adding to other salads
