Lentils are something that every kitchen should have. They are versatile and can be used to bulk up just about any dish. Legumes are known to have high protein levels making dishes in which they are used all the more filling.
Leyenda utilizes only the finest lentils, expertly pre-cooking them and preserving them in a brine that adds both character and seasoning to the lentils themselves. As they are already cooked, simply warming them is enough before consumption (although, if one were in the mood, they could be eaten from the jar with a spoon). They are great as part of stews and soups. They impart a delicious earthy flavor to meals and are excellent for those looking to watch their weight as they are mainly protein with complex carbohydrates. Try substituting rice in your next meal for legumes, if you’re looking to cut carbs out of your diet.
Store in a cool dry place.
