Expert Tips

  • If red lentils are hard to find, use the green variety. Cooking times for lentils may vary, so be sure to check package and recipe directions.
  • High in folate, lentils are also rich in iron, protein and fiber. Red bell peppers are high in vitamin C which helps boost the absorption of the iron from the lentils.
  • These lentils and a tossed salad would make a nice accompaniment for grilled salmon.
