  • Numbers Game: Answer

    I’m back!

    As much as I love this blog, there are times of the year when a full-time job and three evening classes take up the bulk of my time and energy — especially the last two weeks of the semester, when finals and papers abound.

    Thanks to all of you for your patience and encouraging e-mails during this mini hiatus!

    Alright, so let’s reveal some numbers on lentils.

    A half cup of cooked lentils (115 calories) contains 8 grams of fiber and 24 percent of the daily manganese requirement.

    Lentils are undoubtedly a stealth food for anyone not meeting fiber recommendations.

    All it takes is half a cup to get a third of a day’s needs!

    Last October, Oxygen Magazine published a vegetarian meal plan I concocted, which included this delicious lentil salad recipe:

    Preparation time: 45 minutes (don’t worry, most of that time is spent simmering lentils. A great time to catch up on with your Tivo)

    Yield: Four 1/2 cup servings

    INGREDIENTS:

    2 cups dried lentils
    1 cup carrots, chopped

    1 Tbsp. extra virgin olive oil

    5 garlic cloves, minced

    Chopped cilantro, to taste

    Salt, to taste

    Pepper, to taste

    INSTRUCTIONS:

    1. Rinse dried lentils in water.
    2. Put lentils into a large pot with 9 cups of water. Bring to a boil for 3 minutes. Reduce heat and simmer until lentils are tender.

    3. In a large bowl, mix lentils with carrots and olive oil. Mix with minced garlic cloves, cilantro, salt, and pepper.
