I love lentils: delicious, versatile, nutritious and economical. Green, brown, red, yellow, black beluga, french – rarely a week goes by that I don’t make a big pot of lentil soup, or, in the summer, a lentil salad.
Did you know that lentils are great sources of iron, folate and many other vitamins, protein, and soluble and insoluble fibers? But, mostly I like them because they taste great and I can do so many different things with them.
For these warmer weather days, I break out the lentil salad recipes. Click here for one of my favorites: Lentil Salad with Mint, Roasted Peppers and Feta Cheese. Bon appetite!
In Good Health,
Kirstin Lindquist, L.Ac.
PS If you are doing our 21 Day to Better Health Program, just leave out the feta cheese, add more salt as needed for a delicious, cleanse-friendly meal!
