About Bob's Red Mill Red Lentils
Red Lentils, sourced from the Palouse Valley of Washington and Idaho, are small legumes with a mild, subtly sweet flavor. They are perfect for soups, stews, curries, and dips, as they break down while cooking and require no presoaking, cooking in just 15 minutes. These lentils are a nutritional powerhouse, rich in fiber, protein, folate, iron, phosphorus, magnesium, zinc, and potassium. They are a healthy meat substitute for vegans and are among the oldest cultivated legumes, with artifacts dating back to 8,000 to 7,000 BC.
