Jiva USDA Organic Toor Dal (Split Pigeon Peas) 2LB Review



I'm a very adventurous eater, so when I saw a food that I was unfamiliar with, I had to try it! 

Toor Dal sounds amazing. Exotic. Delicious... And it is! But, it's split lentils. Don't get me wrong, I LOVE lentils, and there are quite literally a million ways to prepare them...Since my aim is to be adventurous, I began to think outside of the box...

I wanted to try something new and different. So I went to Google and found a recipe using toor dal (yellow lentils). The recipe is toor dal tadka. It's absolutely delicious! It take a while to make, but it brings all of the flavors of the spices and curries, together with the lentils. 

It's truly a divine meal, and it's healthy!!! 

Toor dal is a protein rich food, and a great part of a vegetarian or vegan diet. This particular toor dal, by Jiva, is organic as well. Not only is it good for you, but it was grown chemical free! 

I received this product complimentary, to test and review, via tomoson.com if I hadn't been hidden for this review, I would never have tried this delicious food. I highly recommend it to anyone wanting to reduce cholesterol, looking for organic and meat free foods, or of you're just looking for an amazing new food to try!
