Lentils are a staple in Middle Eastern cuisine and they should be a staple in your diet as well. 1 cup of cooked lentils (about ¼ cup uncooked) contains 12 grams of protein and 15 grams of fiber making lentils one of the healthiest foods you can eat. Unlike other dry beans, like black or kidney beans, lentils cook up in as little as 10 minutes (red lentils cook the fastest).
