the island of Lanzarote lentils are the most important. They’re rich in protein and are an excellent source of iron. The”conejera” lentil, especially the medium-sized variety, is renowned on and off the island.

On Lanzarote there are three types of lentils: the chiquitita or menuda (small), the mediana (medium) and the Lentejón (large).
