Lentils (Lens Culinaris) originate in North Africa and Western/Central Asia. Archaeologists have found lentils in prehistoric sites and can date their use as far back as 10,000 years! Lentils are considered one of the oldest pulse crops to be cultivated by humanity. Lentils are a part of the Neolithic innovations in plant cultivation which facilitated the shift from hunter-gathering to early farming. They are highly cherished throughout history and in modern day society as a nutritious addition to many cuisines around the world.
