Vegetables are one of the most popular ingredients in modern food, but they’re also one of our most nutrient-dense.
Lentils, on the other hand, are a great source of fiber and iron.
So when you’re cooking them, make sure they’re cooked right.
Here are some tips to keep in mind when you make lentils.
Use your leftovers wisely.
Lentil soups are a staple in many cuisines around the world, but if you’ve never cooked lentils before, here are a few simple tips to get you started.
1) Add more salt.
Add 1 to 1.5 teaspoons of salt to each serving.
That way, you can cook your lentils in the same way as other meats or vegetables, like a stew or salad.
