The French green lentils from the Auvergne are not called ‘the caviar of lentils’ for nothing. Their unique nutty flavor is attributed to the volcanic soil they’re grown in, without fertilizer, which gives them their fine mineral-rich taste.
The climate in the Auvergne also contributes to their unique texture : a lack of humidity and abundant sunshine, courtesy of the surrounding mountains and volcanic deposits, ensures that the lentils dry on the plant all by themselves. Consequently lentilles du Puy have less starch than other green lentils, so they don’t get all mushy and muddy. The AOP label certifies they’re truly lentilles du Puy.
