Include Lentils to Your Vegetarian Diet
05 April 2010
Lentils, like beans, are pulses and form a major source of protein and energy in many parts of the world. If you are on vegetarian diet, include dishes with lentils to your ration. The larger yellow lentils are also called split peas, and need to be soaked before cooking. Smaller lentils, such as red, green and brown need little or no soaking.
