I followed the recipe as posted and used ground turkey. It turned out good. It is very much like a chili meal, though, I didnt think it had a lot of flavor. The family liked it though, adding crackers, shredded cheese and a little plain greek yogurt (tastes like sour cream) toppings. Served with salad. It was a great use of lentils but I probably would not make again.
This was such an easy and tasty dish! I used smoked venison sausage for the meat. I also plan to try it with hamburger next time... and there will be a next time! Thanks, Wyomugs! Made for PAC fall 2011
