Alce Nero organic lentils are sourced exclusively from Italian farms. The lentil plant is extremely ancient and comes from Asia, from where it then spread throughout the entire Mediterranean. When using them, we recommend that you soak the lentils in cold water for 6 hours, taking care to change the water at least once. To help soften the skin, add salt after cooking. Meanwhile, use bay leaves or wild fennel when cooking to avoid bloating. Rich in fibre and protein, they are perfect for soups, purees and broths.
