One of my favourite type of legume is lentil. I usually cook soup of it and serve with chapati. This extraordinary ingredient has been cultivated for thousands years. It’s well-known throughout the world.
There are many health benefits of eating lentils. They help to stabilize blood sugar levels, lower cholesterol, reduce the risk of heart disease, protect from cancer, anemia and diabetes, maintain normal blood pressure. As they are low in fat and calories, lentils are a great addition to a weight-loss diet.
You can cook wholesome dish by combining lentils with vegetables, nuts, herbs, rice or seeds.
Needless to say, we should follow our ancestors’axample and keep cultivating the tradition of cooking this ancient plant.
