Did you know?
Lentils have been part of the human diet since before Neolithic times, with history of their consumption dating back as much as 13,000 years. The cultural history of lentils dates back to the Old Testament of the Bible; while in modern day India, lentils soaked in water are offered to gods in many temples. Popular in regions of Asia and the Mediterranean, lentils are often cooked with rice or prepared as part of a stew or soup.
Although people may think of lentils as “starchy,” eating them instead of bread or pasta, this legume is a multi-faceted, nutritional superstar, with 30% of lentils’ calories coming from protein. Lentils also contain rich stores of fiber, folate, vitamin B and minerals.
Green lentils in particular have a higher concentration of fiber than the more common red lentils; they are also a great source of iron.
