Print Friendly 

Description:
Makes a great side dish or scooped onto organic tortilla chips as an appetizer.

Lentils have a very long association with mankind, as it is believed that these pulses have been included in human diet since Neolithic times. According to historians, lentil plants are among the first domesticated ones in the near East (countries of Western Asia between the Mediterranean Sea and Iran), which is believed to be the place of origin of these plants.

The color of lentils range from yellow, red and green to brown and black. Most varieties of white, red and yellow lentils are sold after removing their seed coat (decorticated forms).
Lentils are rich in protein, with over 25% of lentils nutritional value being protein. This makes lentils the most popular and inexpensive source for protein, especially for those, who cannot afford meat and for vegetarians. Apart from proteins, lentils have essential amino acids, dietary fiber, folate, other vitamins and minerals. 200 grams of cooked lentils contain 18 grams of protein, 40 grams of carbohydrates, 15 grams of dietary fiber, 4 grams of sugar and 138 grams of water. Calorie content in lentils is around 230 (for 200 grams of cooked lentils).
