Lentils Rock!

I bought 2 kilos of lentils (crimson and black), that's how good they are. You can start eating them after a couple of days or keep growing them a few more days until they are quite green. The seeds are large, soft and tasty. The larger seed supports the growth period longer than small seeds. Also, there are no hulls to contend with which makes them a winner. =^]

Awesome Lentils

  • By: Darren Zagrodney Verified Buyer from Victoria, BC CA on May 2, 2018
  • Pros: The Flavor
  • Cons: Not much
  • Best uses: In a Salad
  • Describe Yourself: Healthy Lifestyle

I sprout all my legumes, but with these usually only for 2 days max, then I cook them in a pressure cooker for 3-4 minutes. They are so flouvourful on their own and awesome in brownies instead of flour. (blackbean brownies, but lentils instead) We try to have some ready to eat in the fridge all the time.

I didn't expect to such a pretty salmon colour when the hulls came off. Colour blends beautifully with shrimp and salmon.

Love the crunch

  • By: Zuni Verified Buyer from Owen Sound, ON CA on July 26, 2018
  • Pros: The Taste

  • Describe Yourself: Healthy Lifestyle

Sprouted lentils are great in salads and sandwiches. During the winter I use sprouts instead of lettuce. The texture is a little coarser than alfalfa or clover, so they make a great combination. I like the fact that they sprout quickly so I always have fresh "greens".

Crunchy and delicious

  • By: Olivia Verified Buyer from Mississauga, ON CA on January 5, 2020
  • Pros: The Taste
  • Cons: It takes a couple of minutes in the morning and again in the evening, but it is so worth it.
  • Best uses: In a Salad
  • Describe Yourself: Healthy Lifestyle

These sprouts are easy to grow. I use 750 ml mason jars, and I ordered green and blue plastic lids with holes in them from amazon.ca. They are so nice on a salad. They make it more satisfying.

Truly Versatile!

I was a tad concerned when I saw the words “contains traces of wheat” but I emailed Mumm’s and learned that this meant that perhaps1 wheat seed could possibly be in what you buy. I bought a package and it had 100% lentils. I sprouted them - great crop! Then I made them into brownies. This was hampered by the fact that I kept on eating the sprouted lentils, but I managed to control myself so that there were plenty remaining for my recipe. There are almost no recipes for sprouted lentils, just canned ones, so I had to adlib a lot. But the brownies turned out great - I don’t really like most brownies because I find them overly sweet and stodgy. Not so the sprouted lentil ones. They’re delicious and I feel so virtuous eating them! Now I can’t wait to make a salad recipe I have for them in their raw state. I’m 69 and it’s so much fun to discover new things to eat!!

I use the sprouted Lentils in my Bread Baking. It works great, adds needed nutrients to my already great bread. I also use them as Micro Greens to be used in Salads etc.
