Let’s talk about lentils. I eat lentil soup like my Spinach, Tomato and Lentil Soup and my more traditional family recipe pretty often. Lentils are a legume, they are low in calories, hearty and a great source of protein, as well as fiber and folate. A lot of people who are looking to incorporate more meatless meals into their diets look to lentils to use as a way to bulk up a recipe, such as chili or even a vegetarian sloppy joe. I love experimenting with recipes that feature this super food and definitely enjoy the health benefits that go along with them.
I’ve pulled together several hearty and healthy recipes using lentils here on Family Kitchen for you to enjoy. From delicious soups perfect for this time of year, to lighter salads paired up with grilled meats great for warmer weather, there is something for everyone to enjoy.
