Lentils are great for cooking, and they are great for your health. Lentils are a type of bean, called a legume, and they are readily available throughout the year. Lentils contain a lot of dietary fiber, and other important nutrients like iron, protein, and potassium. They also sit very low on the caloric intake chart, and are found in some of the oldest ancient Greek food recipes.
Lentils are used in a variety of cooking because they are nutritious and great at absorbing a variety of different flavors. It is believed that lentils date back as early as pre-historic times, and were originally used and consumed in Asia. In fact, it is believed that lentils were one of the very first foods to be cultivated. Due to their ability to stay moist for long periods of time, lentils are a perfect accompaniment with ancient Greek food recipes because of their ability to hold flavors together.
