A Most Beautiful Lentil

  • By: Sandi Verified Buyer from Edmonton, AB CA on October 1, 2015
  • Pros: The Appearance
  • Cons: Con - versely, All lentils are extremely versatile and delicious. French lentils, in particular, are both beautiful tasty.

  • Describe Yourself: Healthy Lifestyle

Very easy to sprout. Delicious raw or lightly cooked, and thus super versatile. Excellent for breakfast when sprouted with a bit of sesame and kamut; Excellent blended with radish and used raw as a salad; wonderful sprouted with fenugreek and added to a quick stirfry, or to the last few minutes of a simmering soup. It's one of my essential favorites PLUS French Lentils are the most aesthetically pleasing of lentils, in my opinion. Each one speckled with grey. blue, green and tan looks like a tiny planet. A big clear jar of French lentils in your kitchen is an art d'objet.

Lovely Lentil

  • By: Still Dancer Verified Buyer from Salt Spring Island, BC CA on September 2, 2017
  • Pros: The Flavor

  • Describe Yourself: DIY`er

I sprout these lentils in the same jar with the mung beans and it works very well. Even though they are smaller than mung. Very tender. And they are grown in Canada!!! Love having a large supply of seeds to sprout, I bought the 5 k bag. Now I have extra to give away as trial bags to spread the sprouting word. Mumm's is my new favourite company!! Very fast at answering my questions and delivery (free!!!)

I always thought that lentils had an earthy taste to them, which I thoroughly enjoy. These sprouted lentils take it up a notch. Now I finally know what REAL lentils taste like.

Great germination/flavour

  • By: Yolie Verified Buyer from Mayne Island, BC, CA on May 10, 2018
  • Best uses: In a Salad
  • Describe Yourself: Healthy Lifestyle

5 stars for germination rate (almost 100 %) and flavour. Have grown these and am so glad to have found such a reliable source. They are relatively easy to grow, and its quite labour intensive to remove dry seeds!!

Very easy to grow as greens

  • By: NewbieGardener Verified Buyer from Ottawa, ON CA on June 28, 2019
  • Pros: The Taste
  • Cons: None
  • Best uses: As an Ingredient
  • Describe Yourself: Healthy Lifestyle

Makes a lovely, lush crop of greens. Tastes like peas of course! The leafy fernlike fronds provide an interesting texture. Stand up well to cooking where I cut them in 1/2 inch lengths and add them to soups and stirfries.
