I love lentils and the fact that they are a healthy food choice is such a bonus! I used green lentils. At the beginning of step two, I added a generous pinch of cumin and, at the end of step two, I added several handfuls of chopped baby spinach leaves. In step three, I added one tablespoon of water and one tablespoon of white wine. Couldn't resist. Loved the blend of flavours. We enjoyed this warm and chilled, and since it is such a fabulously healthy choice - and very filling - I'll certainly be making it again, and probably tampering with it each time. Sorry, Elmotoo, I'm just not good at sticking to recipes: mine or anyone else's. Made for the October Vegan Swap.
