Description

Lens culinaris, the botanical name for lentil, are part of the legume family and are known for their lens-shaped seeds. They are a bushy annual plant where the seeds grow in pods (usually two per pod). With origins in the Near East and Central Asia, lentils are the oldest pulse crop known dating all the way back to 11,000 BCE. Today, the majority of the world production comes from Canada, India, and Australia.

They are a rich source of the vitamins and minerals folate, thiamin, pantothenic acid, vitamin B6, phosphorous and zinc. Lentils come in a variety of colors including black, orange, green, and brown. With a robust, somewhat peppery flavor, green lentils are used worldwide in a variety of different dishes includes soups, stews, salads, and curries.
