Lentils.org recognizes the impact of culinary innovators and volume foodservice leaders in feeding and shaping the diets of North Americans. Lentils play an important role in shifting diets towards more plant-based options and expanding the menu. Lentils are simple, quick, and easy to cook, while also standing up well to cooking and freezing in batches. Lentils are also versatile and can be used across the menu and day parts, from breakfast to desserts and everything in-between. Nutritionally, lentils are high in protein and fiber, while being low in fat, making them an excellent choice to extend or replace animal protein in a variety of dishes. Lentils are among the most economical plant-based protein choices, and are applauded for their sustainability benefits.
