LENTILS, MULTI-COLORED BLEND - Gluten Free

MCL-5

Description:

Chieftain’s Multi-Colored Lentil Blend is a richly colored array of some of our best selling lentils. The blend provided a mild, earthy flavor and soft texture making it perfect for soups, stews, spreads and baked dishes. Multi-Colored Lentil Blend contains French Green, Petite Crimson, Petite Golden, Black Beluga, Brown Spanish Pardina and Ivory White Lentils. If cooked for an extended time, the color fades. Multi-Colored Lentil Blend is delicious as a side dish or main entrée. Add to bean dishes or soups for an additional flavor boost and thickener.

Cooking hint: To preserve the color of these beautiful lentils, shock cook the lentils by placing them in a strainer and dipping them into hot boiling water for 1 to 2 minutes. Remove from boiling water and plunge into ice water to stop the cooking process. Repeat process until cooked.

Ingredient Statement:

French Green, Petite Crimson, Golden, Black, Spanish Pardina, Ivory. Lentils (may contain a trace percentage of cereal grains).

Quick cooking and versatile, Lentils are an obvious choice for winter soups, salads, curries, pilafs, stuffing and stir-fry. Mix with breadcrumbs and use to stuff peppers or eggplant. Blend with couscous and use as a bed for grilled seafood or poultry. Toss cooked and chilled Lentils and diced roasted vegetables with a little olive oil and season to taste. Use in soups, stews, baked beans, stir-fry, spreads and dips. Season with spicy chile peppers, fresh herbs, garlic or curry, add dried fruits or mint for a zesty flavor.

Recommended Preparation Instructions:

Lentils do not require soaking. Simmer 1 cup lentils with 4 cups water 6-8 minutes for salads, 10 minutes for main dishes and 20 minutes for soups and purees. Skim the water while cooking.

One cup dry yields 2 cups cooked.
