"Lentils are rich in protein and loaded with soluble fibre, which helps balance blood cholesterol levels, and insoluble fibre, to keep you feeling full," says Aikens.  

RW serving suggestion: Lentil salad

Simmer 300g of puy lentils in salted water for 25 minutes. Mix one crushed garlic clove, one tbsp of chives, five tbsp of rapeseed oil, two tsp of mustard and two tsp of cider vinegar. Add half this dressing to the lentils and spoon over baby spinach leaves. Top with roasted shallots and crumbled goat's cheese, and drizzle with the remaining dressing. Serves four.
