very tasty! i can't comment on how these work in the slow cooker, though. i cooked the lentils until they were el dente & when the sauce ingredients were bubbly, i drained them & added them to the sauce. they simmered on low about 15 minutes while I made salad. they came out perfect! made for veggie swap 7/11. thank you!
