Red lentils

The mild, nutty lentil for the quick organic kitchen. Red lentils are peeled brown lentils that become creamy soft when cooked. No soaking required, short cooking time of 5-10 minutes. Rapunzel has been committed for many year to the cultivation of legumes in Europe. Cultivating domestic protein crops such as lentils, beans or lupines contributes to a more versatile crop rotation and helps to conserve soil health. Legumes can be cultivated without nitrogen fertilizers. This reduces soil pollution and at the same time, legumes also enhance soil fertility, as they can absorb atmospheric nitrogen in their roots. In addition, legumes are an important nutritional basis for pollinators such as bees.
