With our family size, I am always looking for economical meals. That is why I love recipes which include dried beans and, since lentils are a part of the legume family, they are a great addition to any menu.
Lentils are a good source of protein, iron, phosphorus, copper, vitamin B1, as well as, a very good source of fiber, iron and manganese. According to Wikipedia, they have the third highest level of protein of any other legume or nut. They are a nutritional powerhouse!
When I had the opportunity to guest post over at my friend Robin’s blog, Thank Your Body, I shared the recipe for Lentil Soup – Middle Eastern Style which is not only nutritious but also economical. If, that is, you properly prepare your lentils!
So, to find out more about properly preparing your lentils and a great recipe, go to Lentil Soup – Middle Eastern Style.
