Enjoy Life Plentils: Crunchy Lentil Chips

By | Feb 27, 2015

I can’t get enough of lentils. Lentil soup is one of my favorite dishes and I have been trying for years to mimic my mother’s recipe. My version isn’t quite the same as hers, but I’m getting close!

My point? Any lentil based food is right up my alley. So, it should come as no surprise that Enjoy Life’s Plentils are on my favorite gluten-free snacks list. Plentils were one of the first gluten-free snacks that I had the chance to try when I joined the National Foundation for Celiac Awareness (NFCA) team about three years ago. I loved them then and I still love them now.

Enjoy Life Plentils: Lentil Chips

The Plentils collection

Enjoy Life sent some of the chips to the office to try out: Dill and Sour Cream, Light Sea Salt, Garlic Parmesan and Margherita Pizza. I hadn’t had the chance to try any flavor other than the Sea Salt in the past. Dill and Sour Cream is my favorite and the Margherita is tasty as well, with a somewhat spicy yet salty flavor. I didn’t have the chance to try the Garlic Parmesan – they disappeared from our office kitchen super-fast. Always a good sign of a tasty product!

The chips have a wavy rectangular shape and pack a nice crunch. NFCA Patient Education Manager, Rachel Rieger, compared the texture to that of Funyuns.* Not only are all Enjoy Life products gluten-free, but they are also free of the top 8 allergens as well: peanuts, tree nuts, milk, eggs, wheat, soy, fish and shellfish. And, with 40% less fat than regular potato chips, you won’t feel guilty indulging in that crunchy craving.

Head to the Enjoy Life Foods website for more information on the Plentils, including where you can find them in stores.

*According to the Frito-Lay website, Funyuns don’t have gluten-containing ingredients, but are made on shared lines and the final products are not tested for gluten contamination. Other Frito-Lay products, however, are considered safe for people with celiac disease or non-celiac gluten sensitivity (‘gluten sensitivity’). Learn more here.
