I was shopping at our Coop the other day when I found French lentils. Not knowing what I was going to do with them, I bought a couple of scoops. This recipe is flavorful and has a nice rich broth. I was happy to find out that after 30 minutes of cooking, that these lentils held their shape and did not turn to mush. I will be buying more French lentils and making this recipe again.
