    LUv 2 BaKE's Note:

    This is a different kind of stew as the cinnamon is the promident smell as it is cooking, but blends in with the other spices and flavors creating a nicely flavored vegetable stew.

      Really enjoyed it! I didn't add the rice or the lentils and it still turned out a treat :)

      I followed this pretty much exactly, and maybe added a bit more turmeric. This was so terrific, and even though quite hot here in Maryland, this really made the day very special. This had a wonderful bite, with the cinnamon, lentils and ginger. I topped mine off with some yogurt and will make this again, most likely a lot in the fall time. Very easy to put together, and especially loved the parsley addition too. Thanks, Luv2Bake. Made for *ZWT4* June 2008.
