Lentils are an inexpensive protein powerhouse and they’re so versatile. They are the base for tons of satisfying plant-based recipes including soups, curries, and more. I personally love lentils as the meat substitute in my vegan taco soup, slow cooker lasagna soup, lentil curry, slow cooker lentil sloppy joes, and my lentil meatloaf.
