Lentil (Pardina)

The Lentil is one of the oldest cultivated annual legume, and is believed to be native to South Western Asia and Northern Syria. Unlike dried beans, lentils do not need to be soaked before cooking. They are a popular vegetarian food, due to their high protein content and are often served in winter soups and casseroles.
