Expert Tips

Lentils are rich in protein, fiber, iron and folic acid. They are also low in calories and fat.

Got leftovers? Since lentils continue to absorb liquid, you may have to add a little more chicken broth to the soup when you reheat it. Just stir in broth until the soup is the desired consistency.
