Lentils are a super healthy and super versatile food.
Betcha didn't know just how healthy they are, though — or the many ways you can use them! I'm here today to broaden your horizons — to lentilfy you — with some fantabulous Lentil Recipes.
Our family loves beans.
We were actually practically vegan for a good number of years, mostly because we were on a super tight budget and handling raw meat pretty much grossed me out.
I think we've eaten just about every bean variety known to man.
Well, maybe not every one.
Lentils are one of our favorite beans. I love the meaty taste (they make a GREAT substitute for meats if you are looking at cutting your food budget), but they also are full of good nutrition.
Health Benefits of Lentils
– full of protein
– filled with fiber
– don't need to be soaked (but I do recommend de-gassing them. Read How to De-Gas Beans to make sure you don't offend others when eating these fabulous beans.)
There's just a lot to love about lentils.
So with that, here are some AMAZING lentil recipes.
