Their botanical name -lens esculenta- comes from the lens shape of the seed. Lentils were among the first legumes cultivated and consumed by man: their traces were found in excavations in Turkey dating back to 5500 BC and in the Egyptian tombs of 2500 BC. Lentils are also the first legume to be mentioned in the Bible. Compared to other legumes they have the highest protein content, they don’t require periods of soaking before cooking and, like peas, they have shorter cooking times. Lentils are eaten as soups, mashed, or side dishes of cooked sausages - e.g. zampone, cotechino.
