These green lentils from Le Puy are naturally rich in oligo elements, and exclusively cultivated without fertilisers on the high plains of Velay.
It is the first dried vegetable, and only variety of lentil, to obtain the AOC label (Appelation d'Origine Controlée, label guaranteeing the quality and geographical origin of a product).
Preparation tips: these lentils don't need to be sorted or dipped. Before cooking, simply rinse with cold water. About 60g of lentils serves one person.
How to cook: if you are using a pan, cook the lentils for 20 to 25 mins with about 3 times their volume of water. If you use a pressure cooker, cook the lentils for 7 to 10 mins with about 1 and 1/2 time their volume of water. Drain after cooking.
