“Lentils are friendly- the Miss Congeniality of the bean world”

                                                                                           Laurie Colwin

I had for lunch fattouche salad made of lettuce, purslane, green thyme, cucumbers, tomatoes, radish, sumac, pomegranate molasses and 3 big spoons of cooked lentils with onions and rice,  a famous Lebanese lentils recipe known as Mujaddara!

Lentils are selected among the healthiest foods; they are high in proteins, fiber, packed with folate, potassium, iron and magnesium.They reduce blood cholesterol and the risk of coronary heart disease due to their high fiber content.
