Lentil Salad 2

Lentil Salad with Vegan Feta | High in Protein & Iron

This Fresh Lentil Salad is refreshing but very filling. Thanks to lentils and tofu the protein content is high and if we combine it with a source of Vitamin C (in this case parsley), the bioavailability of plant-based iron improves. This salad is perfect for everyone but especially for children and women of childbearing age.
