WHAT ARE PARDINA LENTILS
Lentils are widely eaten in Spain in a variety of dishes and it is normally the Pardina lentil that is used.
Easily recognised, Pardina lentils are small in size with a characteristic greenish-brown colour. Their skin is smooth and their texture is consistent, holding their shape very well after cooking. They have a light nutty flavour, slightly earthy with a peppery finish. However, it is their exquisite flavour that really makes Pardina lentils stand out from any other lentil varieties.
HOW TO USE PARDINA LENTILS
Pardina lentils are fantastic in soups and stews or served cold in salads. Use in any Spanish lentil stews, like lentils with chorizo. This lentil is guaranteed to give you a great result every time. For best results, soak your Pardina lentils in cold water overnight.
