Lentils are a staple in many vegetarian diets as they are rich in protein, fiber, vitamins and minerals. One cup of cooked lentils has 17.8g of protein- pair them with Black Beans for additional amino acids. Red lentils are an excellent source of B-vitamins, one cooked cup contains 90% of your recommended daily intake of folate! Lentils are also high in iron, and in other vitamins and minerals such as manganese.
Lentils have a nutty, subtly sweet flavour and cook quickly. They are highly versatile- great on their own, or add them to soups, stews, curries and dips! They pair well with a variety of spices and take on flavours well. You can even turn lentils into a gluten-free flour and use it to make flatbreads, muffins and other baked goods, or as a thickener or binder in recipes.
