Lentils have been cultivated for close to 10,000 years in the Near East. They became a popular food during Lent thousands of years ago when poor Catholics could not afford fish and needed a meat alternative. The name comes from their distinct shape – two lens-shaped sides. They are known for their high protein content and their 20-25 minute cook time, making them a great addition to soups, salads and pasta.
