Lately, I have been cooking a lot with lentils — yet another food I refused to eat as a child. Of course, back then I only knew lentils two ways: as a soup and as a loaf, neither of which my childish taste buds wanted. Luckily, my taste buds grew up and now I adore lentils. While they may be relatively new to me, lentils are an ancient food that dates back to about 13, years ago. These legumes come in a wide variety of types with distinct flavors and textures and colors that range from green, brown and black to red, orange, yellow and gold. There are many reasons to love lentils. Lentils are a rich source of protein, fiber, iron, and folate. They are also one of the easiest legumes to digest. Lentils are super-affordable and can be stored in the pantry.
