Oh, I am SO excited to share this recipe with you today. It's an oldie-but-goodie recipe, and one that I often recommend for lentil newbies. Yes, that's right. Another of many lentils recipes that I'll share with you. Oh, how I love lentils.
Lentils are one of my favorite sources of vegetarian proteins. I've talked about how great are the carbohydrates found in lentils (very complex, full of fiber), but I sort of skimmed over their high protein content.
Growing up on a farm, I always assumed that meat was a vital part of every meal. After leaving home, studying nutrition in college, and getting married young, I realized that this isn't necessarily true. We started eating a lot of vegetarian meals - mostly because we were poor and vegetarian proteins are cheap and healthy.
