About the Brand

Bob Moore's secret to life may just be "work hard and keep it simple." Living this philosophy, Bob literally puts his nose to the grindstone every day. Bob's Red Mill Natural Foods is an Oregon-based company that utilizes simple, old-world technology to mill hundreds of all-natural whole grain products.

Bob's Red Mill is dedicated to the manufacturing of natural foods in the natural way. In their own words: "With all the sophisticated knowledge of recent times, no machinery has yet been developed that grinds grains into flour quite as well as our flint-hard quartz millstones quarried in France and used by discriminating millers since early Roman times."

"Our well-dressed (sharpened) sets of millstones turn the highest quality wheat into a finer, better baking bread flour than all the hammer mills, steel roller mills, steel buhr mills, or pulverizers ever built! These slow turning millstones grind the bran, endosperm, and germ (containing its nutritious wheat germ oil) into flour in a cool natural way, creating a more assimilable food."

Bob's Red Mill stone grinds all common and most uncommon grains into flours and meals on its over 100-year-old mills. They mix them into an astounding array of unique cereals, pancake and waffle mixes, machine and hand-made bread mixes, quick bread mixes, gluten-free mixes, and specialty grain products.

These lentils are sold as "French", but are actually grown in Oregon. Uncooked, they look very similar to the very tasty lentils from Puy, France. Once cooked, however, they lose their dark green marbled color and swell up to a much larger and softer lentil very similar to the lentil most Americans are familiar with. If you're looking for the real deal, stick with lentils from Puy, which are tiny and dark green. When cooked the Puy lentil remains small and has a firm texture, retaining its earthy texture, color and flavor. The Oregon lentils do not.

Lentils would win the Miss Congeniality title in any legume pageant. Even the lowly brown grocery store variety is tasty in soups, salads and on their own, but Lentils du Puy are the Holy Grail of lentils, grown in rocky French soil and very expensive in the US. Bob's Red Mill French Green Lentils are the closest things to Lentils du Puy we can get. Even these are not cheap, but SO worth the price!

How fortunate are we that Bob's Red Mill has these tiny green jewels available. Described on the package as 'exquisite', this is not hyperbole. They are beautiful to look at and to eat. The flavor is more sharply defined and 'beanier' than the brown kind, and makes a superb soup. Simply saute some chopped up carrots, onions and garlic in some olive oil, add a cup of these green lentils in three cups of water or stock, a cup of dry wine, and a can of stewed tomatoes with juice, a healthy pinch of Herbes de Provence or Italian Seasoning, a couple of bay leaves and bring to a boil. Reduce the heat and simmer for 45 minutes to an hour. Meat eaters can add some ham cubes, cut up cooked Italian sausages or smoked turkey cubes, but it's wonderful meat free and even better the next day. For an elegant soup, use a stick blender to puree, and add a little cream or lemon, but none of these is necessary. A sprinkling of Parmesan cheese to serve is the perfect touch.

I'm thrilled with these lentils and they've become a staple in my kitchen. They do take a little longer to cook than the package directs, and do not expect them to become mushy. No matter how done they are, they will retain their shape along with a lovely chewiness. Main dish, soup, side dish or salad, you can't go wrong.

I am a huge fan of French green lentils, and this is by far my favorite recipe:

Cook up dried lentils til dente. Toss with crumbled gorgonzola (or other favorite cheese) and sauteed onion and chard stems. Roll the filling up inside of wilted chard leaves and place in any old baking dish. Top with a simple bechamel sauce and bake til warm through. It's a great vegetarian dish to share with company but it's soo good you shouldn't wait until you're hosting. Just cook it up for yourself!

I've always liked lentils but only recently tried green ones. They are delicious and so good for you. Makes really elegant soup combined with Italian sausage, garlic, and fennel. And that's only for starters -

These are some of the best lentils I have eaten. They are a little firmer, and taste a little better than anything I have found on local store shelves. I eat these as a stand alone meal, and I am sure you will like these as compared to any others you have tried.

I buy Bob's Red Mill products when I need them. As far as I know they are a trusted name in foods.
I never had the "French" green lentils but after a show by Laura Caulder I had to try them. I understand these are not from the reigon of France that the more costly "Le Puy" green lentils are grown. But honestly, they are around $17.50 for a little over a pound (that includes shipping) so let's try these first.

These are smaller than the dark lentils I am used to. They didn't break down or give off a soupy or starchy texture either. They retain a bite... "to the tooth" texture after proper cooking time. I went ahead and followed the directions, added sauteed onions and garlic, toasted walnuts and chevre. Topped with fresh thyme and a drizzle of walnut oil. Very, very good.
I think a lentil smoked sausage soup is in my future.

When these are gone,(I stored them in my freezer like it says to) I will have already tried the Le Puy lentils. These convinced me to splurge, so I'll go for the best during the holidays. Also, I really want to try prunes in armagnac, so maybe a French food fest is in order, duck confit, wines, Moelleux au Chocolat...Thanks for sharing.

I eat lentils at least once a week if not more and these are the best I've ever had. Typically, I just buy the pound bag of goya or store-brand lentils which are serviceable, but every once in a while I'll order these from amazon. They really have much more taste than the generic pound bag of lentils. They take longer to cook, but are definitely worth it. Highly recommended
