Lentils are natural, nutritious and delicious!

 

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

 

There are many different varieties of whole red lentils, but the medium size, a nugget or jumbo which we have grown on our own family farm over the years, are our favourites.

 

They have a tasty and distinct flavour, almost brown in color, they hold their shape well when cooked.  They are larger in size and softer in bite than the Wimmera grown French Green (du puy) or Black Lentils and are very easy to use.

 

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 eg vegan, vegetarian, flexitarian, to gluten free*.

 

They can be milled, roasted, puffed, spouted, soaked and put in cans/ jars etc. Then turned into dips, soups, salads, pies, sausage rolls, a meal on their own with some delicious veggies or as a compliment to meat dishes etc depending on your diet. There are endless opportunities to create with these lentils.

 

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 flavours 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.

 

*As is industry standard our pulse crops are harvested on shared equipment.

 

Uses

Great for Middle Eastern spiced food including salads, soups, casseroles, slow cookers, curries, lamb or sausage.  Easy to cook these lentils are ready in just 15-20 minutes. Or pop them straight into the dish you are cooking, after rinsing and they will be ready in approximately 15-20 minutes
