This is an a-maz-ing recipe! I did the lazy-man's version and I just threw the chopped onion, minced garlic, small Dupuy lentils, pineapple, plantain, spices, 2 cups of tomato juice, and 1 cup of water in a heavy pot and simmered (covered) for about 45 min.
This is sooooooooooo good! I try to include a fair amount of healthy-yet-tasty meals into my rotation when menu planning, but usually they fall flat. This one was an absolute hit! It's a nice, subtle spicy lentil dish, and the pineapple/plantains add a bit of sweetness to it. Just a teaspoon of salt accentuates the spicy-sweet flavors. I served it on top of portions of steamed white rice, and it was very well received! Thanks for the recipe!
Wow. This is so good and different. I really like the complexity of the flavors. Thanks for posting.
We loved this, I've made it twice. We're trying heart-healthy foods, and this was perfect. Tasty and different from the usual lentil soup.
Nice recipe for a lentils that's a little different than usual. I liked the sweet flavor that the pineapple and plantian give it. I forgot to add the allspice and cloves when I cooked it, but will add to the leftovers. The directions don't say when to put them in.
