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.

Product Information



Store in a cool, dry place.

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.

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

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.

Cook's Notes If you want to speed up the cooking, use a 400g can of brown lentils instead of the dried. Drain them well and use only half the quantity of cider. The time in the oven should be reduced to 45 minutes, or until the pork is cooked through.
