Lentils: a recipe roundup

Enjoy one of Canada’s great homegrown ingredients!

Did you know that Canada is the world’s largest producer  and exporter of lentils? There are over 5,000 lentil farmers across our great land, and 95% of Canada’s lentils are grown in Saskatchewan. Annually, Canadian farmers plant over 3 million acres of lentils, giving us a great homegrown supply of this terrific and inexpensive ingredient. Lentils are a great source of protein and iron, plus they are packed with B vitamins, magnesium, zinc and potassium. No wonder vegans and vegetarians love them so much – and you can too! Here are some of my favourite ways to cook with lentils (click on the titles to jump to the recipes).
