Product description

Size:5 LBS Burlap Bag

Buy Lentils grown from the fertile soil of Washington State. The Mader family has been involved in agriculture for five generations. Our farm operations span across the south east part of Washington State and are headquartered in Pullman, WA. In 2001 we acted on an opportunity to add a grain and legume cleaning facility to our operation. Our Cleaning Facility, Palouse Trading is located in Palouse, WA - just a short drive from Pullman. Palouse Trading was originally named Wallace Grain and Pea when it first opened its doors in the 1930's. The plant was designed for quality not quantity and has cleaned legumes and grains for the international market and domestic consumption. Our food is appealing to our consumers because of its nutrition, aesthetics and traceability to our farm. Each bag of food comes with a QR Code that allows you to see harvest details of your food, seeding dates, the field we grew it in, and more. All of our products are certified Kosher Parve, Non-GMO Project Certified and our farming methods are Certified Sustainable by the Food Alliance. Our foods are different because Steve & Kevin Mader plant, harvest, clean and package at our own facilities in Washington State - there are few if any companies that can track your food and details of your food back to the field like we do.

We grow Spanish or Pardina lentils, it is very rare to find this variety of lentils in grocery stores in North America. It is a tiny lentil with blue/purple undertones to the brown skin and a yellow inside. This is the lentil of choice in the Mediterranean and Spain. They have a strong nutty flavor and they hold their shape very well after being cooked. This combination makes them desirable for all types of lentil recipes. The lentils are fabulous for cooking, baking and lentil soup. Their nutty flavor lends itself expertly to baked goods. These brown lentils also make the best meat substitute as they are one of the only lentils that hold their shape when cooked, from lentil tacos to lentil loaf, these lentils never disappoint. We really think our lentils are a cut above the rest. So why we do offer you brown lentils - they are not your run of the mill brown lentils they are the extraordinary Pardina lentils.

Brown lentils are fantastic in soups, salads, tacos, brownies and more. One great thing about this lentils is that now matter how you plan to use it in you lentil recipe, the basic cooking method is the same. The only thing to keep in mind is cooking time while preparing your lentil recipe. If you are making a lentil dessert you may want to cook your lentils a little longer so they will puree easier. If you are making a lentil soup or lentil salad you will want to cook lentils till they are al dente. The other great thing about cooking lentils is that they do not need to be soaked before cooking and only need to cook for about 30 minutes. Making them quick and easy to cook. There are two popular ways to cook lentils, on the stove and in the rice cooker.
