Description: Fieldstone is an organic grain farm and processing facility located in Armstrong. They work with many organic farms all across Western Canada to process and resell their grain, legumes and peas. This is their own unique blend of nutritious and colorful lentils and peas. Ideal for adding eye appeal, flavor and texture to soups, salads and casseroles
How To Prepare:
Fieldstone's soup mix can be prepared the day of serving since there is no need for pre-soaking. First, spread the mix out on a light colored plate or cooking surface to check for, and remove, small stones or debris. Place the mix in a strainer, and rinse thoroughly under cool running water.
To boil lentils and peas for use in recipes, use three cups of liquid for each cup of soup mix. Lentils placed in already boiling water will be easier to digest than those that were brought to a boil with the water. When the water returns to a boil, turn down the heat to simmer and cover and boil for 25-30 minutes.
These cooking times can be slightly adjusted depending upon the final use. If you are going to be serving lentil/pea mix in a salad or soup and desire a firmer texture, remove them from the stove top when they have achieved this consistency - typically 5-10 minutes earlier than their usual cooking time. If you are making daal or some preparation that requires a mushier consistency, achieving this texture may take an additional 10-15 minutes.
