Very tasty and flavorful meal. I followed the recipe except I used Extra Virgin Olive Oil instead of butter. I served this over long-grained white rice. Thanks!

This was really good! I would make it again. It was already pretty tasty without the ginger lemon, so I was hesitating to add the additional ingredients, but I was glad that I did. It all came together in the end.

This was flavorful indeed. I doubled the garlic, and I also doubled the broth... my yellow lentils were quite thirsty, though that might have been because I forgot the lid the first 20 minutes. I also pureed the soup in a food processor before serving. My family liked it.

Tasty. DD (toddler) liked it too. I used sweet butter (unsalted), homemade lamb broth, as that is what I had on hand, sea salt, plus the rest of the ingredients but I forgot freshly ground black pepper. Was flavourful anyway. We ate it with a rice pilaf and also with rice crackers. Made for SEPTEMBER NA/ME TAG!

I can't believe I haven't rated this yet as I've been making it for over a year now. Excellent recipe! So fresh and tasty and a great meatless meal. I add about 1/4 c. of chopped cilantro before serving. Thanks for the recipe!

Very nice and healthy lentil recipe! I made half the amount with brown lentils and vegetable broth. Made for the NAME tag game.

Oh yum! Who said healthy can`t taste great? I made 1/2 the recipe cutting back on the liquid. I sauteed 1 small diced onion then added the garlic and proceeded with the directions. Added ground coriander. Thanks for a great side or main meal!

I really liked this dish. The lemon flavour was strong but not overpowering. I cooked mone for 30 mins but the lentils were still undercooked, next time I would cook the lentils for about 15 mins longer

This dish is awesome! I've made it several times for friends and get asked for the recipe each time. My DH loves it so much, he's ASKED for it almost on a weekly basis! This is a keeper ... plus I make a soup out of the leftovers! Truly wonderful. Thanks, Cookgirl!

I had seen this in Sunset Magazine and it looked yummy. Then I found it on Zaar! Fate! I made this last night and didn't change a thing. I served it over some jasmine rice that I had leftover. I would say that it serves 4 this way as a main dish. Next time I'll have a spinach and/or tomato salad to go with it. Easy and inexpensive. YUM! I'll be making this one again on a regular basis.
