      Delicious! I was looking for a good lentil recipe and decided to give this a try - and I'm glad I did. It is hands-down some of the best lentils I've ever had. The lemon juice really added a lot of flavor. I used fresh spinach instead of frozen and it turned out great.

      I LOVE this dish!! I've made it twice and I love the earthy taste of the lentils complemented by the fresh lemony zest. I forgot to put the cilantro....didn't matter - it was still SO YUMMY!! Thanks for the recipe!
