GF Menu Swap – January 19

This week’s menu is being hosted by Sea Maiden over at Book of Yum. She has chosen Dal (or lentils) for this weeks ingredient and has some great recipe links. Lentils are a great source of dietary fibre and have high levels of protein. There are so many different types of lentils that the nutritional values vary. I think the last time I had lentils was as a soup; Split Pea Lentil soup to be exact. This was when I first went GF and wasn’t really sure what I could eat, so I pretty much lived off of stews and salads for about a month – hahaha!
