Sometimes LIFE gets in the way of posting to the blog, ya know. But the craziness here has simmered down and I should be back on track in no time.
Lentils are high in protein - supposed more than even beef! They have more protein & fiber than quinoa, too. High fiber & protein help keep you full longer.
Serving size is 1/4 dry beans
That comes to 2 WW PointsPlus.
I made the pan below with 1/2 c lentils and 2 cups chicken broth - it made a decent amount!
Like it says one the package, I sorted them & rinsed them. I didn't see any stems or odd items, so I picked out the odd colored ones, like that bright red one up there!
The package said to just used plain, unsalted water, but I was rebellious and used chicken broth. Toward the end, about 5 minutes before I turned the burner off, I stirred in a tsp or so of minced garlic & some salt & pepper.
I think they're pretty good ! The family hasn't tried them yet, but they will soon
