This was a great recipe!!! I'm not sure why nobody has rated it. I did only a few minor changes. I didn't feel like being in the kitchen hovering so I put this in a crock pot and cooked it all day on low. I did add about 1/2 tsp curry and 1/2 tsp cumin and added the 3 cups of water as the broth cooked down (I didn't have the space to add the water initially). It was a great hit!! A nice change from the usual "Ham and Lentil" recipes that everyone seems to have. Thanks for sharing Marie
