Lentils are of unparalleled quality. Tracing their origins back to 8000 - 7000 B.C. in the Near East, lentils have long been used as a meat substitute and are a common feature in many global cuisines, particularly in the Middle East and India. Lentils' peppery, savory flavor is a constant across all varieties, while the texture can vary depending on the type. French, brewer, and other lentils that are cooked with their seed coat retain a firm texture upon rehydration. Varieties like Red Chief lentils, on the other hand, are decorticated before cooking, resulting in a smooth, textured consistency. Traditionally found in soups or ethnic dishes, lentils also make a delicious addition to cold salads. When added to pasta sauce, lentils enhance the body, texture, and protein content, creating a meatless Tuscan-style sauce.
- Lentils are lauded for being a rich source of molybdenum and folate.
- They also provide a generous supply of copper, fiber, phosphorus, manganese, protein, iron, zinc, and other essential vitamins and minerals.
- Integrating dried lentils into your meals can save both time and money. They're great in recipes, entrees, casseroles, salads, or even as a standalone dish.
- They make a quick and convenient snack for those with a busy schedule.
