The lentil is a humble little legume that packs a punch in both flavor and nutrients, plus they’re easy on the budget. Nutrition-wise, lentils are loaded with fiber and protein. With 12 grams of protein in 1/2 cup, lentils are an excellent meat replacement when combined with a whole grain item.
Lentils lend themselves whatever flavors you add to the pot. Instead of plain water, cook lentils in vegetable or meat broth or stock, and add aromatics. Garlic, fresh herbs, some sliced browned onions or shallots, and a bay leaf can turn lentils into a fantastic side dish.
