I loved it! My kids were'nt crazy about the raisins, but too bad for them. I added more lentils than the recipe says, so I added more liquid. Thanks for this one. It was great for leftovers, too.

This is very good. I made the recipe as written except after trying to find pine nuts in 4 stores, I gave up and used almonds. It was still good. I used golden raisins. I will definitely make it again, and I'll keep looking for the pine nuts! Thanks!
