Red Decorticated Lentils: A Healthy and Versatile legume.

Lentils, with their protein content, can represent a valid alternative to meat, fish, eggs, or cheese-based second courses. They can also be consumed as a first course, a couple of times a week, combined with pasta or rice.

Red decorticated lentils are characterized by their red paste and delicate taste, which tends to break down during cooking.

TIPS: Thanks to the lack of the cuticle, red lentils almost completely break down during cooking. You can prepare them as a single dish or as a side: just sauté carrot, celery, garlic, and onion, add the lentils and enough broth to cover them. In 10/15 minutes, they will be ready to be blended into a cream that you can use as mashed potatoes or as a soup, adding more broth.

PAIRING: To accompany red decorticated lentils, we recommend a Grignolino d'Asti or another white wine.

ORIGIN: Red decorticated lentils are a traditional food of the Middle East, rich in protein and fiber. They have a sweet and crunchy flavor, perfect for salads, soups, or as a base for vegetarian or vegan dishes. If cooked longer, they turn into a perfect mashed potatoes as a side dish.
