Bring on the pulses!
Lentils, like all pulses, are an inexpensive and easy way to fill your belly any day of the week, and they could not be simpler to cook. Not to mention, unlike so many other superfoods, cooking those tiny legumes actually helps enhance the absorption of calcium, iron and zinc. This salad breathes new life into the cheap and cheerful protein with a range of vibrant colours, satisfying textures, and sweet and earthy flavours. We recommend choosing a variety of beet colours to get the most antioxidant bang for your buck (and the most lunchroom envy), but in a pinch, any variety will do.
