Ken Albala in his Beans: A History, says of lentils:
"The lentil is an ancient sentinel among beans, weathered, time-worn and tolerant of the harshest conditions. Without this lowly legume, the course of human history might have been entirely different. The lentil was among the very first plants ever domesticated some 10,000 years ago along with grains such as einkorn wheat, emmer and barley."
