Lentils are fibre superstars! Being a great source of both soluble and insoluble fibre, lentils are good for your heart, your bowel, you blood sugar and your energy. Insoluble fibre feeds the beneficial microbiota in the lower intestine. In addition to being an excellent source of fibre, lentils are also packed with folate, iron, and other minerals and vitamins.

Add in the lentils, red onion, zucchini and stir to combine. Serve on washed baby spinach leaves and top with alfalfa sprouts.
