Precious black lentil from Monreale – Organic Legumes La Riserva del Re

An ancient and prized legume of Sicilian origin, the black lentil of Monreale is a dark-coloured, very small and tasty variety. Produced under organic farming without the use of chemical pesticides, the black lentil La Riserva del Re is a healthy and genuine food. Rich in iron, proteins and fibre, and with a lower fat content, it is ideal for those who follow the Mediterranean diet. Compared to other types of lentils, the Monreale black lentil is of superior quality and is also more digestible because it has a very thin skin. After cooking it resembles caviar.

Recommendation for use: versatile in the kitchen, black lentil is perfect for soups and as a side dish for meat or fish dishes. Also excellent with traditional Indian dishes because it pairs well with oriental spices
