Autumn Lentil Blend is a seasonal colored blend including French Green, Petite Crimson, Golden, Black Beluga, Spanish Pardina and Ivory White Lentils. The color of the blend fades if cooked too long. The blend provides a mild, earthy flavor and soft texture.
To prepare: 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, drain. Skim the water while cooking. One cup dry yields 2 cups cooked. Try them simmered in your favorite soup or stew, or baked in a covered casserole with roasted vegetables and Andoule Sausage.
