Loved by vegans and vegetarians across the globe, this beauty of a legume is a gem if you are after a natural source of plant protein. They contain the third-highest levels of protein of all legumes! Lentils are a low GI food and provide a steady, slow-burning energy due to their unique combination of fibre and complex carbohydrates. Lentils are also a source of iron, which helps transport oxygen throughout your body and is key to energy production.

Lentils can be used in salads, soups, stews and any other dish where extra texture is desired. We offer green lentils from Australia and Canada. Try tossing buckwheat soba noodles with cooked lentils, small broccoli florets and leeks. Dress with olive oil mixed with garlic and ginger. Or how about trying a simple Moroccan lentil soup?
