Love these lentils!

I absolutely love these lentils. You get the high protein and fiber that you get from beans, but they cook very quickly. They are a very small lentil. They can be used as a side dish, in soup, and cooled then put in salads. Very versital.

A 1/2 cup serving is about 100 calories with zero fat. You also get 4 grams of Fiber, with is very important in your diet. Along with 6 grams of Protein. Wow, fat free protein!

Yum lentils

Love love love these lentils – they cook really fast and are healthier than beans! Here’s a recipe that my even the one eyebrow raisers like:

In a large stock pot cook a half package of bacon ends and pieces, when the bottom of the pan starts to brown and the bacon is nearly done add about 1/3 of a bottle of cheap merlot wine and get the bacon unstuck from the bottom next, chop two or three leeks ( green tops and all! ) and add those to the bacon/wine debauchery that is happening, add your conveniently packaged and delivered (and recently rinsed) Barry Farm lentils. Cover with enough water that the lentils rest under about half an inch of water. Add salt, pepper and herbs de Provence set on a medium low heat – cover for a soup, it should be ready in a little less than an hour- or – cook uncovered for about an hour for a more robust lentil side dish or some bed-for-my-salmon main course action. Quick, easy, almost healthy (curse my love of bacon !) and de-lic-ous enjoy!

beluga lentils

These are great. You can buy them precooked from Trader Joe’s. I recently bought them uncooked. They taste great.

Black Beluga Lentils

About a year ago I read an article that stated that black lentils were very healthy. So, the hunt for black lentils began. I did find some at Trader Joe’s, but they are in olive oil, and I wanted plain. I am ever so happy to find them available here at Amazon. Wonderful product. I am grateful for Barry Farm and all of their products.

black beluga lentils

I have hunted high and low to find these. They are wonderful!! They make the best dips, taste sorta like blackeye peas and look sorta like caviar! Quite the combo pack. Throw in great nutrition and you have it all! Have ordered from Barry farms before and they are quick.

Tasty Lentils

I initially purchased these lentils to make Punjabi Sukha Urad Dal. Trying to find these lentils at my local grocer was going nowhere, so to Amazon I went. My dish turned out to be quite tasty and these lentils were stickier and heavier than others, however, that was the intent for what I needed. These are used quite a bit too in Indian cooking and cook in about 30 minutes (if soaked for at least an hour prior to cooking). All in all, good purchase!

great!

While I do ponder why I actually order food from Amazon, some things just cannot be trusted at a local supermarket. I found these after wanting to make a kale salad with lentils, bleu cheese, fennel, etc – ordered these on a whim, had them delivered for free (thanks, Prime!) and prepared them for my dish. The taste is wonderful and earthy, leftovers lasted in the fridge for a week and the price was great.
