      Very tasty!!! I did put balsamic vinegar in it per the last review. Also used less oil. To add a little heat to it I added a natural salsa, which a trick my mom has always used with her lentils:)

      Tasty, healthy and filling! I thought the 1/4 cup of oil was a bit much. I only used about 1 tbsp. so I cut down on fat and calories. This recipe would work well in a crockpot, I'm sure. The addition of the vinegar is like the icing on the cake. Be sure to use a good red wine or balsamic vinegar. Don't skip it! Thanx for sharing!
