Lentils, French – All About French Lentils

French lentils are a type of legume. They are darker in color, smaller in size, and less starchy than regular lentils. The texture of French lentils is less mushy and they keep their pretty round shape after cooking – which makes them a perfect addition to healthy salads.

The slightly nutty and peppery flavor of French lentils also sets them apart from other types of lentils.
