When people hear lentils the general reaction is, eeww lentils. But they don't have to be, all they need are some simple spices and you can turn lentils into a healthy, little spicy , delicious and nutritious meal. Lentils are very good for you, they are one of the highest sources of protein. This is my own personal favorite lentil recipe.
