Additionally, lentils certainly are a great way to obtain dietary fiber, folate, and manganese. Cook them up and toss them in soups, on salads, even insert them in a pita with vegetables.

It was a little unlike anything we'd had before and I was pretty sure the kids wouldn't want it. However, I tasted it as being I went along and incredibly liked it. The actual test - the youngsters. They gave it an amusing look after they have got to the table, but after a couple of bites - polished it off. They loved it! With their superstar nutritional profile and low, low cost, I'd be willing to state lentils will be a staple during my pantry. Here's the dish I did before bring my loved ones to lentils.
