Whole green lentils have pale or mottled green beans that are small in size with a somewhat peppery flavor. The beans retain their shape after cooking quite well, so they are often added to salads and other side dishes. They are also fast to cook since you do not have to presoak it.

Health Benefits

If you want to add a cholesterol-lowering fiber to your diet, you should definitely try our whole green lentils. This product also provides special benefits by preventing blood sugar levels from rising right after a meal. Some people call green lentils a nutritional giant because a cup of cooked lentils contains 230 calories. Other remarkable health benefits include the following:

  • Green lentils are rich in both soluble and insoluble dietary fibers. The former helps you get cholesterol out of your body, while the latter increases stool bulk and prevent diverticulosis and bowel syndrome.
  • Fiber in lentils also helps your body get slow burning energy while stabilizing blood sugar levels. It is remarkable that a high fiber diet even reduces the amount of the most dangerous form of cholesterol – the very-low-density lipoprotein – by more than 10%.
  • Eating more green lentils significantly reduces the risk of death from a heart disease. This is partly due to a large amount of magnesium and folate. Magnesium helps your body prevent heart attacks, and folate regulates the methylation cycle.
  • By eating green lentils, you increase your iron stores that are used for creation of hemoglobin and key enzyme systems for metabolism. Having enough iron is especially important for women as they often experience iron deficiency during pregnancy.
  • These small green beans contain a significant amount of folate that helps you protect yourself against certain types of cancer and vascular diseases. Pregnant women should get enough folate to lower the risk of certain birth defects.

  • 1/2 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon paprika

Instructions
1. Prepare lentils according to package directions or use pre-packaged steamed lentils (like those from Trader Joe’s).
2. Add onions, garlic and peppers to a large sauté pan lightly coated with olive oil over medium heat. Saute for about 3-5 minutes or until onions begin to soften.
3. When the onions have softened, add tomatoes, 2 cups cooked lentils and spices. Continue to saute over medium heat for another 3-5 minutes, until spices are evenly distributed throughout the lentil mixture.
