Everybody needs iron

Did you know that 30% of the world population lacks iron?

Did you know that 5 tablespoons of dry lentils ( a big portion) cover 50% of the daily needs for a woman and 90% for a man?

Did you know that you can cook lentils in so many different ways, you could eat them everyday, ... at least, we could in our family?

Yes, good food can do you good! In other words you can reconcile yummy and healthy.
Here is the "base" recipe : cook 1 cup of green lentils, my favorite, in hot water, slowly (very light boil) with an onion stuck with 4 cloves and a carrot peeled and cut in 4 pieces, salt, pepper and bay leaves. When they're cooked, you can enjoy them warm with pork, or cold with smoked salmon slices and shallots with a vinaigrette dressing made with raspberry vinegar (the key ingredient), or blend them with 1/2 of the cooking water and 1/4 of heavy cream for a delicious lentil soup... Therefore, join the Fan group of Lentils and enjoy!
