2 pounds - Idaho



From the Pacific Northwest Farmers Cooperative in Idaho.

Brown lentils are one of earth's first domesticated crops, and are still one of the most widely used pulse in existence. They have a relatively short planting and harvesting time and can grow well even in poor soil. They are easily dried and stored for long periods of time, and are quick to prepare.

Lentils are a "cinchy" way to add fiber and protein to your diet without adding fat or calories. Its hearty flavor goes a long way to satisfy your "meat tooth," so if you're looking for a way to a) go veggie or eat less meat, b) improve your diet dramatically, c) eat well for less money or d) dine your way to happiness, wealth and beauty, you can't find a better dish for yourself than a heaping helping of lentils.

I'm always astonished at how deeply satisfying and rich a simple lentil soup or salad can be. All it takes is just a little bit of seasoning from a squeeze of lemon, some freshly ground black pepper, and a pinch of sea salt to make lentils sing.

For me, brown lentils recall a younger day of macrobiotic dinners eaten with brown rice and steamed zucchini, all soaked with lots of home-brewed tamari. If that's your thing, bravo; you're probably already a big "lentilhead". What's amazing to me is how they also occupy a space at the other end of the table. Brown lentils are not only easy, they're elegant. Lentils can be braised with duck fat and demi-glace, pureed with parsnips and deep-fried into croquettes, or pressed together with roasted mushrooms and walnuts for pate. Yes, you can have your lentils and relish them, too... no wheat grass juice required.

Lentil lovers in Spain go crazy for these because they're the most flavorful lentil around. Grown on the Palouse, these quick-cooking lentils "muddy" the water, but maintain their shape and taste out-of-this-world delicious.
