Fantastic dish, my wife couldn't stop eating it!!! Just changed a few things. I sauteed the onions and fresh pressed garlic cloves in a tablespoon of Kraft Greek Feta dressing until most of the liquid was gone. I used a full cup of lentils and a full cup of gourmet blend wild and whole grain brown rice. I then added 1/2 of a 398ml can of Aylmer fire roasted tomatoes(my wife would have liked a full can). To the entire mixture I put in a tablespoon of Kraft Fig Balsamic dressing. It adds just a very slight sweet flavour to the lentils. After I put it into a baking dish, I added a 1/4 cup of Hormel real crumbled bacon, which gives just a very slight smoky flavour. Extra fluid at the bottom when it is done? Try dipping some fresh sourdough bread into it...fantastic. Enjoy this dish!!!
So good! And so easy!
Easy and tasty! Next time I think I'll add some chopped celery and sliced mushrooms.
This was so easy and shockingly good.
I didn't have cheddar so I used feta - actually made it awesome.
Used lots of minced garlic too.
My vegetarian daughters loved it but said it didn't look that pretty!
I was looking for a vegetarian dish for when my SIL comes for a visit. After reading most of the comments, I came up with these changes. There was some concern that the dish didn't cook properly in the oven, so I cooked this in my crock pot for 3-1/2 hours on high. I addded 1/4 tsp cumin, 1/8 tsp cayenne pepper, 1/2 tsp garlic powder, salt and pepper. I added about 1 cup of dried mushroom mix. I soaked the mushrooms and used some of the mushroom broth with the chicken broth. I cooked the onions in the microwave with a little bit of oil just to soften them and managed to forget about using the cheese. To me, this was comfort food and we really enjoyed this dish. I will definately keep this and use it often. Kudos on a great find!!!
Great recipe, I am glad that I read the other reviews, and increased the lentils to 1 cup it cooked up closer to the orginal time given. Thanks.
Dear Future Self: How many times are you going to make this recipe before you smarten up and realize that you CANNOT make it in the 90 minutes that the recipe calls for. It. Can't. Be. Done. Plan to use boiling broth, turn up the temperature, and put it in the oven for at least 2 and a half hours. Or better yet, cook it on the stovetop for 90 minutes. Add some tomatoes, herbs from the yard, and extra onions. Yum yum! My husband and my toddler gobble it up!
I would've given it 5 stars, but after an hour and 10 minutes the dish still had a lot of water. So I cooked it for another hour and it was done. It was very good, and you spice it up anyway your heart desires. I will make it again!
Fantastic recipe! I have made this at least six times and my b/f and I love it. It is very flavorful and so easy. Thanks for sharing this great recipe!
I've made this twice, once as stated and once with adjustments, and just didn't love it, sorry.
