When it comes to vegan protein| you can’t go wrong with lentils. Naturally gluten-free and full of fiber| these tiny legumes are a healthy pantry staple I always have on hand ¡ª and Gwyneth Paltrow agrees. She shared this easy| quick| and satisfying salad in her most recent cookbook.
Tangy| bright| and clean| this recipe makes for a light yet filling lunch and even better leftovers; the longer this salad sits in the fridge| the better it tastes. To bulk things up| top off your lunch container with cubed tofu| or if you’re not vegan| add some feta cheese| a chopped hard-boiled egg| or a portion of grilled chicken. Any of these additions would be delicious.
According to Gwyneth| this salad is best if it’s allowed to sit for at least 30 minutes and served at room temperature.
