Tiny brown "Puy" Pardinas Lentils are the most prized of the three main varieties of lentils grown in Spain.
Pardinas lentils are unique because they retain their shape, and have a distinct nutty flavor. They are an unexpected treat to those who consider lentils an ordinary fare.
The other two Spanish varieties of lentils, big fat green Castellanas and medium brown ones, are often bland, do not retain their shape and cook almost to a purée.
Pardinas lentils are the ideal foundation for a pot of classic Lentejas con Chorizo, a favorite hearty stew from Spain. Because our artisan quality lentils are super-dried to preserve their full flavor and retain their shape, they require overnight soaking.
To prepare traditional Lentejas con Chorizo, you will also need some pimentón smoked paprika, some jamón serrano, chorizo, and olive oil. You can find all of these ingredients at La Tienda.
