Wonderful! I did add salt and pepper, omitted the black beans and doubled the lentils. That is all I did differently. Went perfect with Spicy Mushroom Ratatouille #107014 a bit of greens and baguette. Thank you for posting! New Note: I wanted to add that the leftovers made wonderful stuffed bell peppers the next day. I added a little tomato and artichoke hearts. I had mine warm, my daughter liked hers cold, more like a salad.
