Pilau Mix (500g)

From Hodmedod's Great British Beans Peas, Haleworth, Suffolk



A blend of Wholegrain Emmer Wheat and Olive Green Lentils.

Hodmedod's blend of emmer and lentils makes an excellent pilau, but can also be used in salads, as a base for stews or as a delicious alternative to rice.



For quicker cooking soak the mix for 2 or 3 hours in double the volume of water to mix. Either rinse the soaked mix and cook in stock for 30 to 40 minutes or, for pilau, cook dry in a little oil for a few minutes before adding stock as required

Add soaked or cooked mix to stews. Try home-milling and adding to breads, savoury muffins & pastry.



A little tip from us:

Cooking times for dried pulses and mixes will be longer at higher altitudes and when cooking with hard water or older pulses.

Adding bicarbonate of soda during soaking and/or cooking will soften the pulses and reduce the cooking time.
