This is fresh, delicious, and easy to make. I really enjoyed the combination of flavors. Mint is not something I would have normally added to a lentil dish, but it was perfect. I will definitely make this again!

What a tasty dish. I reduced the amount of cumin and fresh mint by half and it was perfect for us. My Lebanese BF said it reminded him of home :-) Thank you.
