Nutrition Nugget: According to Bob’s Red Mill (www.bobsredmill.com), lentils are one of the oldest cultivated legumes and have been around since 8,000BC! They are a nutrition all-star because they are packed with fiber and even contain a steak’s worth of protein in one serving. Lentils are also loaded with folate, phosphorus, iron, magnesium, and potassium. Overall, they are a wonderful meat substitute that can be used in soups, stews, and many more dishes.
