I was looking at this recipe and on the spur of the moment decided that's what I wanted for dinner tonight. I cut the recipe in half thinking there would be enough for my DDs if they wanted some too, but they weren't interested...I ate a plate of them and just couldn't resist...I had to go back and finish them off...yum yum! Glad I don't do that every day! Thanks for sharing chia!!!

Yum, I've been making lentil and rice recipes recently and this is one of the ones that really appeals to me. It's kind of plain but in the way that makes for really good comfort food. I used a mix of red and green lentils, both of which worked well. The recipe itself is really easy. Thanks Chia!
