Good vegan comfort food. I used the Auto setting on my crockpot which has an hour on high and the rest of the time on low. This worked well with the basmati rice and mix of brown and puy lentils that I used. In fact it probably didn't need the 4 hours that it got and I probably could have gotten away with 2-3 hours judging by the look of it before we headed off to sports practice.

Loved this recipe, I used green lentils and brown basmatic rice with 6 cups of chicken broth. It turned out great. Topped it with a bit of cheese and chili pepper flakes because I like spicy. Will make this again and again. Thanks for sharing

What a great recipe! I made this for dinner and served it over some fresh onion naan. i wasn't expecting for the flavors to work so nicely together. it was absolutely delicious. i didn't have any problems with the texture however i did turn off the crock pot an hour early because it seemed ready to me. (so i only cooked it on high for 3 hours and then left it on warm for about 30 min.) it turned out great. thanks roosie!

I really loved this recipe. The crockpot made it INCREDIBLY easy. I cooked it on high about 3.5 hours and used brown rice and brown lentils. I tasted great with Texas Pete Vinegar pepper sauce. My husband had 3 bowls!

This was very nice and we enjoyed it for dinner. I used long-grain Basmati rice and Homemade Maggi vegetable broth with onions for the broth. Will make this again. Thank you for sharing:)

Simple and delicious! I used long grain brown rice, 5 cups of water with Better than Bouillon in place of stock, and cooked on high about 3.5 hours in my 3.5 quart slow cooker. Four of my five family members really enjoyed this, including one who doesn't like lentils much.

I wanted to like this because it was so healthy and easy, and it smelled really good. Just didn't do it for me, though. I ended up adding a ton of hot sauce.

The flavor of this is really interesting. It was a very gross looking meal. The rice became mush and the lentils stayed hard. If (a big If) I make this again I think I will cook them individually and mix them before serving.

Catch this! I do NOT like lentils! The flavors in this were AWESOME! Mine turned out more like Egyptian re-fried beans as I put this in the crockpot before leaving home and returned an hour later than I thought I would. This didn't affect the flavor of the recipe it just made serving it a bit more of a challenge. I did decrease the cumin to 2 tsp. for my mild-tasting kids but I think they would have done fine with the entire 1 Tbsp. I will definitely make this again! Thanks for posting!
