Star of the Show:  Lentils

Not only are lentils a complex carbohydrate, rich in soluble fibre but they are also a great protein source if you are vegetarian or vegan or if you are looking at cutting down your meat intake.  They are a great source of iron and adding tomatoes ,which are rich in vitamin C, makes sure that the iron is absorbed.
