We’re crazy about the humble legume and all its wonderful health benefits. Our Happy Earth People Red Lentil Fusilli is made from nothing but 100% red lentils and offers almost 24 grams of protein and plenty of fiber.
Red lentils provide you with steady and sustained plant-powered energy, and are rich in fibre and complex carbs. Plus, they’re also relatively low on the glycemic index and gluten free. Yay!
Tastes like pasta. Good for the whole family.
WHEN TO USE
Eating a variety of legumes 3-4 times a week, can help prevent chronic illnesses including heart disease, high blood pressure, diabetes, cancer and weight gain as well as improve gut health.
HOW TO USE
Add the pasta to rapidly boiling, salted water. We recommend using a timer from when the pasta is put into the pot. Cook for 6-8 minutes until al dente (depending on stove and preference) and voilà! Enjoy with your favourite sauces, veggies and accompaniments.
