French lentils are often considered to be the best and most delicate of all lentils, with their distinctive blue-green speckles and rich flavour. They hold their shape well, but tend to take a bit longer to cook than other varieties.
Directions: In a large pot, bring 3 cups water (per 1 cup lentils) to a boil. Add lentils and simmer partly covered for about 45 minutes; check for tenderness after 18-20 minutes. To retain firmness, try adding a teaspoon of oil to the water before adding the lentils.
Try using French Du Puy lentils in soups, various vegetarian dishes, or sprouted for added nutrition.
