Profile: Green lentils are easy to prepare, earthy flavored, and high in protein.

* Firm, shape-holding texture
* 1/8" in diameter
* smoky, peppery


Green lentils, with their earthy, peppery flavor, take the longest to cook of any lentils. They still cook in around 45 minutes. Green lentils are good for salads because they maintain their shape nicely. The lentil is high in protein, fiber, iron, zinc, potassium, and magnesium.

The bushy annual lentil plant grows to around 16 inches tall with seed pods. The lentils are dry seeds preserved within the pods. Pulses are a group of legumes that includes dried peas and chickpeas.

This ancient legume is thought to originate from southwest Asia and northern Syria, and is referenced in the Hebrew Bible. From the Latin "lens" came lentil.

With grains or rice, lentils make a complete protein. Rice and lentils are the base of the popular Indian dish "khichdi" and the Egyptian dish "kushari." Approximately 25% of lentil production is consumed in India.
