½ cup cooked lentils has about 45% of your RDA
Change up your standard turkey sandwich lunch order and reach for lentil soup and a half sandwich instead—or go ahead and get creative in the kitchen. One idea for a hearty homemade dinner: combine sautéed garlic and a small onion with red lentils, coconut milk, low-sodium vegetable broth, cumin and coriander; then simmer until lentils are soft. (For more folate-rich options, look to beans and chickpeas as well.)
