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.
