Invaluable Vegan Ingredient: Lentils

Lentils are one of the fastest cooking legumes (they’re tender in 20-25 minutes), they go well with lots of other foods, and they're super-healthy. Lentils are an excellent source of fiber, protein, iron, zinc, antioxidants, and folate. A diet rich in lentils and other legumes may help reduce cholesterol, hypertension, and the risk of prediabetes.
