Allergy-free Friday: Red Lentil Waffles with Rosemary Pomegranate Syrup (Vegan/GF)

The Purple Almond!

The Purple Almond

Today’s allergy-free recipe is a bit unusual, in that the main ingredient in these waffles are lentils.

Lentils are small legumes, which are easy to prepare and soak up flavors of other ingredients Lentils might be small, but they pack some nutritional power. One cup of lentils contains 230 calories and a WHOPPING 16 grams of fiber! (The RDA for fiber is 25 grams per day). The health benefits of lentils include:

  • Improved heart health-This is due to their fiber content, but vitamin and mineral content as well.
  • Improved blood sugar-Once again, the fiber content helps out, this time, stabilizing blood sugar.
  • Energy- The iron content of lentils can improve energy levels.
  • Digestive health-once again-FIBER!

Here is the vitamin and mineral content of lentils from whfoods.com.
