Multifunctional recipes have always been my favorite. Trying one of them gives you a lot of benefits and one single recipe serves a lot of functions. This vegan green lentil salad recipe is one of them. Let me explain.
Everyday millions of people give a break for lunch and rush to nearest restaurant to enjoy their meals and chat with colleagues. With the advent of spring and increasing temperatures, I see more people who grab a pack of salad and a fork to enjoy the the warm weather in the nearest park. There are a lot of reasons for doing so. Number one: People want to eat something healthy. Number two: They don’t want to spend a lot of money for lunch. Number three: all the summer holiday plans have already been made and women want to wear bikinis, and they want to get rid of all the extras put on during winter. Number four: Some parks have free wi-fi access. Number five: some of the above. Number six: all of the above. Number seven: none of the above. If you fit into number six, you can stop reading this recipe further, but I guess the definition of a multifunctional recipe is clear enough.
Lentil is one of the richest protein sources which is not meat, therefore vegan! Unlike carbohydrates, protein gives you a long lasting energy and delays the feeling of hunger. Having a bowl of vegan green lentil salad is both a satisfactory meal, and a healthy choice for lunch or dinner.
You can find packed lentil salads in one of those markets that serve lunch. Instead of paying 8.49 for half a pound salad, you can make your own vegan green lentil salad for a far less cost. I usually make this salad in double amount and we have it both for the lunch on that day and for the dinner the next evening.
