As much as don’t think I could ever be a vegetarian, I sometimes get sick and tired of eating chicken every which way, and wanted to try something a little more interesting then my weekly chicken meatballs. I had some lentils in the house so I started looking for a recipe.  I came across a lentil one from the Meatball Shop.
     
     Just one cup of lentils provides 18 grams of protein, 16 grams of fiber, only 1 gram of fat and 230 calories.  They are loaded with folate, phosphorus and potassium as well.  I always tweak a few things in a recipe depending on what I have in the house, and also try to sneak in some more veggies and whole grains if I can,  and this recipe is no exception.  I had them for dinner, for lunch and for snacks and served them over a mashed cauliflower.  Hope you enjoy as much as we did…
