Did you know Lentils are grown and used extensively in the Middle East and India. Bought dried, they can be red, green or brown and are small and disc shaped. Lentils are easily digested, are low in fat, have a low GI, and when combined with a grain make a complete protein for non-meat eaters – Lentil Bake anyone? Green lentils or ‘Puy’ lentils are from France and therefore very expensive. The Australian equivalent is called "blue" lentils, as the French ‘got a little frothy’ about the use of the name ‘puy’ – a little like the Champagne story really!
