Lentils, Caramelized Onions, and Dried Figs Yogurt Bowl


Yogurt is high in protein, calcium, and probiotics, which is great for your immune system. Combined with lentils and figs you get fiber and more vitamins and minerals. 

For best results, use a great quality extra virgin olive oil. We love Colavita!
