    Lentils are a fantastic source of protein for vegetarians. Just 100g contains 26g of protein which is equivalent to 52% of your recommended daily allowance. There are incredibly versatile, easy to cook and very filling.

    Basically, lentils are legumes known as pulses. Lentils, like peas and beans, are seeds. Unlike dried beans, dried lentils don't need to be soaked before cooking - and the best way to do this is to boil or stew them in liquid. It is fine to add dried red and yellow lentils straight into a sauce, stew or soup, but it it is best to partially cook green and brown lentils separately in water before doing the same. There are many different types of lentils that seem to come in and out of fashion.

    Puy lentils are a type of green lentil and are small and dark with speckles. Puy lentils are AOC protected and come from the region of Le Puy in France. Because of this they are more expensive than other lentils. These take about 30 minutes to cook and keep a certain degree of firmness.

    May contain nuts, celery, mustard or sesame seeds.
