W wanted something warm tonight, so I came up with a French Lentil Chili. Lentils are low in fat and high in protein and fiber. The good news is, they cook quickly. Lentils have a mild and earthy flavor, and are best cooked with strong flavorings. French green lentils are sort of peppery and hold their shape rather well. They don't get mushy like most other lentils.
Always rinse lentils and pick out stones and other debris. There's no need to soak them. Store lentils in a cool, dry place.
