Organic Coral Lentils – 500g$87
Lentils are very interesting legumes. They are very rich in vegetable proteins and fibres, as well as in minerals and trace elements (phosphorus, iron, manganese, copper, folate, zinc). They are more digestible than other legumes and have a shorter cooking time. Rich in lysine, they are complementary to cereals. They improve the balance of a cereal and vegetable meal. Coral lenses are orange in colour and are more common in North Africa. They are peeled lenses (hence their colour) that cook very quickly.
Dhal recipe: Boil a liter of water with 1 clove of crushed garlic, 1 teaspoon of cumin and sweet paprika, 50gr of tomato paste, 3 fresh tomatoes in pieces, 2 chopped onions. Add 300gr of lentils and boil for 20 minutes over low heat. Season with salt and garnish with chopped cilantro.
Organic Green Lentils – 750g bulk$126
The real French green lenses, biodynamically grown. Rich in vitamins (B1, B2, B6), iron and calcium, green lentils provide 4 times more fibre than rice, pasta or potatoes and contribute to lowering cholesterol levels. These can be pale or mottled green-brown in color with a glossy exterior. They have a robust, somewhat peppery flavor. This makes them ideal for salads and other side dishes.
Preparation: Soak them in warm water for 1 hour before cooking. Rinse them quickly in cold water, drain them and place them in a pan with 3 times their volume of unsalted cold water, to prevent them from hardening. By doing so, the lenses will retain their hold while being soft under the tooth. Bring to a boil and cook covered for 20 to 25 minutes on small simmering.

Organic Bulgur Wheat Fin – 750g$129
Known for its leading role in tabbouleh, a lemony Middle Eastern grain salad with tomatoes, onions, and herbs, bulgur wheat has been around for at least 4,000 years. Arguably the world’s first convenience food, bulgur production originated in the Mediterranean region, but it has spread far and wide. Bulgur remains one of the easiest to cook and most versatile of the whole grains.
Bulgur comes from cracked whole-grain kernels of wheat that get parboiled and dried before packaging.
Though bulgur wheat is most commonly found in tabbouleh salad, you can use it just like rice or couscous, or any other whole grain, such as barley or quinoa. Instead of rice, try pairing your favorite vegetable stir-fry or vegetable curry with cooked whole grain bulgur wheat. It also makes a good binding ingredient in vegetarian or meat patties and balls, such as the Middle Eastern dish called kibbeh.
