I have a confession to make.
Lentils used to scare me.
I never knew how to cook them or really even what they were.
So I did some research and was pleasantly surprised at what I found. They are from the legume family and are packed with protein (about 30% of their calories). Lentils are also a great source of iron, phosphorus, copper, fiber, folate and manganese.
Next up, I needed a recipe. I could not find one online that I loved, so I mixed a combination of recipes into this one, easy (super delicious) recipe!
