It is easy to prepare, cooks up fluffy and light yet adds texture and crunchiness to dishes. Somewhat nutlike in taste, it offers a multitude of healthful attributes. Not only high in protein, it includes many essential amino acids. No wonder it is considered by many to be the perfect food. Lentils are an ancient legume and archaeological digs suggest they were among the first domesticated crops in the Near East between 9,500 - 13,000 B. C. Lentils are so named because of their shape since the Latin word ΓÇ£lensΓÇØ refers to a double convex shape. Many cultures use lentils in their diets being they are high in protein, iron and fiber in addition to being low in calorie. Once considered a poor man's food, lentils have been rediscovered as a nutritional delight.
