Lentils, green/brown, “Laird”
We also purchase these plate lenses in organic quality from Turkey or Canada. The variety Laird delivers large lenses, they are about 6 mm in diameter. Perhaps their size is one of the reasons why they are called plate lenses. What is certain is that a plate of these lenses is already a satisfying meal that doesn’t cost too much. Tradition has it that they were originally called bright lenses because of their low price. The inside is yellow, the skin has a play of colours from green to brown. This is partly due to the variety and growing area, but also to the storage time. However, dried lentils retain their valuable ingredients even after prolonged storage. In this respect they differ only insignificantly from other lens varieties. Laird are protein-rich, a meal of 100 g dried lentils covers almost half the daily requirement of an adult. Their fat content of around 1.5 g and the numerous dietary fibres make lentils a satisfying dish that is not too high in calories despite the carbohydrates. Minerals such as magnesium and zinc also help maintain health and well-being.
