This year Tim Gawthroup has grown these delicious and beautiful olive green lentils at Partridge Hill Farm in Hertfordshire for our friends Hodmedods. These whole British lentils are simply superb for salads, stews, soups and more.

Tasty, versatile and easy to cook, whole lentils don't need to be soaked and add a rich, nutty flavour to your recipes. 

Lentils are high in protein and fibre and low in fat, making them a nutritious and easy to use ingredient. 

Approximately 500g

100 % Green Lentils

Place the lentils in a strainer/colander and throughly rinse under running water. Transfer into a small saucepan and add water. Add any seasonings being used.

Bring to a rapid simmer over a medium-high heat and then reduce to maintain a very gental simmer. Simmer uncovered for around 20-30 minutes. Add more water if needed. 

Cook until tender & then salt and strain the lentils. Return to the pan and season them as you wish.

About

Hodmedod’s

Nick Saltmarsh, Josiah Meldrum and William Hudson founded Hodmedod in 2012 with a mission in mind, a dedication to supplying beans, peas, grains and seeds from British farms.

They were particularly interested in searching out less well-known foods, like the fava bean – grown in Britain since the Iron Age but now almost forgotten – and black badger peas.

With a big dream and humble beginnings the team founded Hodmedod following the successful Great British Beans trial project (set up to stimulate and assess demand for indigenous pulses). For the trial project they bought a tonne of British-grown split fava beans, packed them up at the kitchen table, and distributed them through community groups and local shops. Each pack contained a postcard with a short questionnaire on the back to collect feedback on the beans. The response to the beans was overwhelmingly positive and the rest is history.

Hodmedods are one of our farming heroes. With their in depth knowledge of indigenous species, passion for sustainable crop rotation and commitment to soil health, they are a real inspiration and a gem in the British farming landscape. A deserved winner of the BBC Radio 4 Food & Farming awards Best Producer.
