In Italy, lentils are often served just after midnight on New Year's in hopes of a year full of luck and prosperity. Bring yourself a bit of luck and a lot of yum all-year long with Umbrian Lentils from Bartolini.

These cherished pulses—grown in the rolling hills of Umbria—are loved by chefs and home cooks alike for their rich, nutty flavor, supple texture and ability to hold their shape after cooking. Plus they are packed with nutrients, chock-full of fiber and lean protein—a win-win-win!

After a season of indulgence, these lucky legumes are our go-to for healthy, satisfying meals in a jiff (they only take 20–25 minutes to cook!).

Cook a big batch for tasty, healthful meals all week long.
