These beautiful lentils are grown in the Wimmera region of Western Victoria, by Stephen and Tania Walter of Burrum Biodynamics. The Walters place their focus on soil health by applying biodynamic preparations to activate the soil microbiology. Soil fertility is also improved with multi species cover crops, use minimum/correct tillage techniques and grow food without using chemicals nor water soluble fertilisers.
The oft forgotten whole version of the ever popular split red, these lentils are great in curries, soups, casseroles and pasta sauce, with the added benefit of being sproutable. You can use these in any recipe that calls for brown lentils.
