Red whole lentils
These are a year-round pantry staple, essential for rounding out salads during hot weather and hearty soups in the winter months. Regardless of the season, their quick-cooking, no-soak-required nature makes them ideal for healthy weeknight meals. Red lentils are currently all the rage as an anti-aging superfood. Covered by a brown seed coat, it is only when they are split or de-hulled that the bright red colour is revealed. Lentils were a staple in the diet of ancient Persians, who consumed lentils daily in the form of a stew poured over rice.
