      It was really satisfying and a one-dish meal for me this afternoon. I used a combo of green, yellow and brown lentils(1/4 cup). It was very nice. Next time, I plan to substitute the water to cook the rice with vegetable broth(and omit the salt) for a richer dish. Thanks for sharing!

      We enjoyed this and will be making it again soon. I did use canned cut green beans, precut matchstick carrots, and vegetable broth instead of water for the lentils. Very nice side dish or quick lunch.

      Very attractive and doesn't detract from/try to compete with other dishes. I also think this would be a good base for rice salads.
