Lentils are a natural, nutritious and delicious food.  The Wimmera Grain Store lentils come straight from the paddocks grown in the Wimmera/Mallee region, cleaned and packed in the area to your pantry, so we think you cannot get more natural than this !

 

Wimmera grown French Green (Puy Style) Lentils  (also know as Australian Green Speckled Lentil) have a thin skin, firm texture and are a lovely nutty flavour.  They cook quickly and hold their shape giving them a fine appearance.

 

Grown on our own family farm, they have been grown from seed procured from the famous Le Puy district in Auvergne, central France.  Great care has been taken to search out similar soil and climatic condition, to produce a lentil with the same delicate taste.

 

This variety of lentil is highly regarded by Chefs around the world.

 

High in plant protein, fibre and naturally gluten free, these lentils do not have any add sugar, dairy or preservatives and they are not genetically modified.

 

Lentils are a relatively inexpensive food and are a great way to cater for families with a diverse range of dietary needs ie from vegan, vegetarian, flexitarian, gluten free to simply the healthy minded.

 

Lentils can be stored in your pantry for months and are handy to have on hand just like rice and pasta (but packed with a few more nutrients!)

 

Dried lentils take on the flavors of what they are cooked with, lending them to being a very tasty ingredient to some fabulous dishes.

 

They also expand in volume when cooked.  One cup of dried lentils can make two cups of cooked, making meals go further for larger families or those on a tight budget.

 

The rich soils of the Wimmera /Mallee can grow some of the highest quality and diverse range of lentils in the world.

 

 

Uses

Great for salads, sides, casseroles or braised to accompany poultry, lamb or sausage.

Lentils do not require soaking before cooking.  They cook in approximately 15 minutes or less if you require al dente.  We recommend you do not use salt in the water as this will toughen the skins.  Thoroughly rinse the lentils prior to cooking and then re fresh for later use or just drain.
