Small Brown Lentils from Thessaly (17.6 oz)
Lentils are a delicious and versatile source of vegetable protein and fiber, making them an ideal vegetarian entree. Conveniently, they don't require presoaking like most other legumes. Lentil soup or "fakes" is a simple and nutritious Greek staple, but you can also add lentils to rice pilafs or even pasta to enhance the nutrition and satiety of these simple carbohydrates. Lentils also make a delicious cold salad when combined with vegetables like onions, roasted red pepper, Greek oregano, and a drizzle of Greek extra virgin olive oil.
