      Very tasty, 2 cups of lentils makes enough to feed an army though- if its just you and husband/wife, you may want to cut the recipe in half. I used 1/2 paprika and 1/2 Hungarian hot paprika to give some added punch to the recipe. Other than that, it was delicious, easy, and will be on my menu again! :)
