Puy lentils

I watched a YouTube video on how to pronounce these and it sounds like pwee lentils!

These grey-green lentils are grown in the French region of Le Puy, are are thought to be superior in texture (which they retain after cooking) and taste and have a slightly peppery taste.

How to prepare dried puy lentils: Rinse & drain the Lentils. Then put them in a saucepan & cover with 3 x their volume of water (try using veggie stock and some white wine for extra flavour). Bring to the boil & simmer for 20-25 mins, until the lentils are firm to the bite. Drain & serve or add them to your favourite recipes.
