With more fiber than most other lentils, eston green lentils hold their shape exceptionally well.
The lentil, the dried seed of a small shrub, is an ancient staple
in southern Asia that has been consumed for over 8,000 years. Besides
possessing a mild earthy flavor of their own, lentils take on flavors
well and have extremely high levels of protein (26%) and iron. When
mixed with grains (traditionally rice) on the same plate, the resulting meal provides complete plant-based protein.
