June is here, and Ottawa is settling into the second summer since the start of the pandemic. As the latest stay-at-home order lifts, more people are turning to biking as a way of getting active and getting around — just in time for Let’s Bike Month, EnviroCentre’s annual celebration of cycling!

We’ve said it before, and we’ll say it again – legumes are a powerhouse when it comes to low-carbon foods! They improve soil, lower CO2 and N2O emissions, and are a nutrient and protein dense food source. This recipe uses lentils to make flavourful and filling meatballs! It is fun and easy to make, plus it’s easy to customize based on your tastes and preferences.
