      Lentils are a wonderful source of plant protein and fibre. They are low in calories and digest slowly, releasing their energy over a long period of time. Lentils were traditionally eaten all across Europe, they’re a super versatile vegetable as they work well in soups and warm dishes as well as cold in salads. This French style salad is wonderful cold or warm and can be eaten on its own, or as a side to a chicken dish.
