RECIPES: Cooking Lentils, Spicy Lentils, Lentil Salad, Lentil Burgers

By Rae Udy

With the economy struggling many people are finding it difficult to provide nutritious and healthful food for their families. When I am asked about saving money on the grocery bill I always suggest lentils. Lentils are quick to cook, taste great, are very nutritious and best of all, inexpensive.
A one pound bag of lentils costs a little more than one dollar. With this one bag and a few staple ingredients you can have Spicy Lentils for dinner tonight, a crispy Lentil Salad for tomorrow’s lunch and delicious Lentil Burgers for another dinner.
Lentils are also ideal for a busy cook because these beans do not require a lengthy soaking time and cook quickly in about 15 minutes. Find lentils in the dry bean section of almost any grocery or health food store.
One cup of cooked lentils contain 230 calories and only one gram of total fat. Lentils are low in sodium with four milligrams and they are a very good source of dietary fiber with 15 grams or 63 percent of daily value needed.
Lentils are also a great source of iron providing 37 percent daily value and high in protein with almost 18 grams per cup. The are also a good source of calcium and vitamin C and are cholesterol-free.
