Recipe by Simply Chris
This is a great dish to serve on a cold winter night. The recipe calls for green lentils, but you can use any kind of lentil you prefer. Serve this with a crisp salad and some crusty french bread for a fantastic meal, fit for company. Modified from a recipe I this from the BV Wine Society probably 10 years ago.
