You could dig this dish for its tasty combo of organic brown and wild rice with red and green lentils; but that’s not the only reason. Even though it’s vegetarian, this marriage of legumes and rice provides all the amino acids your body requires to manufacture the complete protein it needs to synthesize hormones, build muscle, and keep your immune system strong. In fact, one serving contains more protein than a large egg. At the same time, you’ll score as much fiber as you’d get from a bowl of oatmeal - all for 180 calories and only 1.5 grams of fat. Since there’s no salt added, it’s nearly sodium free.
