The lentil is an edible pulse. It is a bushy annual plant of the legume family, known for its lens-shaped seeds. It is about 40 cm (16 in) tall, and the seeds grow in pods, usually with two seeds in each.
For many years, Lentils have been traditionally eaten with barley and wheat. Lentils are one of the earliest foods to have been cultivated. Highly nutritious, Lentils are effective in reducing cholesterol. Revered for its high protein content, Lentil soup soothes gastric troubles and constipation. A study published in the Archives of Internal Medicine confirms that eating high fiber foods such as Lentils, helps prevent heart disease.
