Lentils may be the oldest cultivated legume in history. Archeological digs have produced artifacts dating lentils clear back to 8,000 to 7,000BC! Today, lentils continue to be a staple in Middle Eastern and Indian cuisine. These little legumes have a pleasant, earthy flavor. They're very easy to prepare, needing no presoaking and cooking up in just 30 minutes!

Though small in size, lentils are a nutritional all-star. They're rich in fiber and contain about a steak's worth of protein, making them a healthy meat substitute for vegetarians and vegans. Lentils are also packed with folate, iron, phosphorus and potassium.

Lentils work wonderfully in just about any kind of savory dish you want to create. They can be tossed into both green salads and grain salads. Lentils are delicious added to soups, stews, dals, curries and chilis; and are fantastic as a meat substitute for wraps, veggie burgers and meatless sloppy joes. They're also quite tasty cooked by themselves and served over rice or mixed with other vegetables. See our package for our favorite Lentil recipes — a spin on the traditional Lentil Soup spiced with cumin, coriander and cardamom, and Mujaddara with Spiced Yogurt, a Middle Eastern comfort food.
