Product Description

These genuine Puy Lentils are grown in the region of Le Puy en Velay in France and are without doubt the tastiest lentil we know. The volcanic soil and unique climate of Le Puy en Velay give these dark green lentils their uniquely peppery flavour and strong earthy aroma, making them a firm favourite with all food lovers.

Prepare & Use

For best results:
No need to pre-soak. Rinse the lentils under running water then drain. Put the lentils in a saucepan and cover with twice their volume of water (try vegetable stock, or half stock half wine for extra flavour). Bring to the boil, then simmer for 15-20 mins until the lentils are 'al dente' (firm to the bite). Drain and serve.

Can't review flavour because they contain gluten

Bought these without checking for gluten content first. But why would you, it's a single product and a legume, not a grain! Had to chuck them out - grrrrh. All other reviewers say they taste good so I'm sure they do, but at this price I would expect them not to be contaminated. Obviously I can't make a direct comparison but for a coeliac the Waitrose Love Life lentils seem a very good substitute.

The best!

As a french girl, I can't cook other lentils than Puy lentils! I have tried other varieties but I always go back to Puy lentils! They are quick and easy to cook, they remain firm but creamy inside. Worth every penny!

Puy lentils are the best...

...if you want the lentils to retain their firmness without being hard, and these Merchant Gourmet ones are as good as you can get. Try them and you'll never use anything else.

Loveley lentils

Really tasty lentils. For a minimal amount of time spent cooking these end up much better than the ready-to-eat version.

Lentil Salad with Honey Dressing

This is a light and healthy salad that tastes just as good the day after it is made. If you fancy serving with homemade croutons, simply drizzle a little olive oil over sliced ciabatta bread, cook until crisp and golden on a preheated griddle pan and cut into croutons.

Cumin-flavoured Puy Lentils with Leeks, Courgettes and Peas

Cumin-flavoured Puy Lentils with Leeks, Courgettes and Peas

Quick to cook up, this dish works because the naturally delicious flavours of the ingredients are allowed to shine through without being concealed. The spices add a delicate and delicious edge which infuse exciting flavours into the dish, and the cumin-flavoured lentils are a tasty take on plainer, pasta-based dishes.
