Lentils have been with us from very early in agricultural history. There are many different types. They are a legume (just like peas and beans) that can be sprouted, fried, baked and cooked.
They are very nutritious, a great source of protein and are low GI. I think they are a great ingredient in their own right but they also make a great substitute for meat. Check out PK Makes Michelle Bridges’ Lentil Shepherds Pie.
Guess where most of them are grown. Wikipedia says Canada! Wow. 🙂
Dietary Info: Great for vegetarians, vegans and is gluten free.
