Green lentils are a wonderful legume. They are often rejected for more common side dishes such as potatoes and rice. They can actually be made into a very healthy meal on their own, such as a heavy salad, or you could simply use it as a sponge to soak up all the wonderful sauces from your stew or casserole. Using green lentils in a salad is best as they can help you stay full for longer while also adding bulk. Try cooking a cup of green lentils, then mix with bell pepper, red onions, tomatoes, and cucumber. For flavoring, try toasting some cumin and paprika and tossing that through the salad. To really level this up, try creating a salad dressing with a sherry vinegar.
Green lentils take the longest to cook out of all the lentils, but they hold their shape far better than other legumes when they are finished cooking. So if presentation is the name of the game, green lentils are a little easier to work with.
