      *When cooking lentils, DO NOT add acidic ingredients like tomatoes until they are of desired texture. The acid in the tomatoes prevents them from getting softened.

      This was delicious. The marjoram and tarragon made it so aromatic, and the lentils and orzo gave it so much body. I made it a day ahead to blend the flavors even more. I loved it!!
