The Humble Lentil

So I 've become a fan of the humble red Lentil. My dutch relatives would be pleased with the purchase price too which I found at a wholesale club for $6.99 for a 5 kg bag.
The nutritionists would be impressed too with the protein boost
 contained within as it is a whopping 22 grams of protein in only100 grams/1/2 cup red lentils!
What else is so cool about the lowly lentil is that  it is uber easy to prepare and throw into any soup or stew. If you want a pure lentil soup you need only add red lentils,water,a boullion cube, an onion and parsely and your extra fresh veggies chopped up and you have a wonderful hearty soup that will feed an army....ok maybe not an army but a BIG family. Our favorite flavoring to add to this soup other than salt and pepper is soy sauce.
Dig in!
