Lentils & Baby Potatoes with Cilantro Pesto

Want a healthy and unique way to get your carb fix? Try 24 Carrot’s recipe for lentils and baby potatoes tossed in a cilantro pesto. This dish is packed with flavor from the cilantro pesto and delivers plenty of fiber–11 grams of fiber to be exact. If you don’t like cilantro feel free to sub-in traditional fresh basil when making your pesto. Fun fact: Lentils are a great source of soluble fiber which is the kind that forms a gel in your gut to slow down digestion (making you feel fuller) and helps to reduce LDL blood cholesterol.
