Top Review by piranhabriana

I really liked this. I decided to make it about halfway through the day so I made it stovetop instead and it took about 2 hours. The reason for 4 stars instead of 5 is I thought it was just a little bland - I kicked mine up with some hot sauce after serving. I also thought it was a little too much on the lentils... maybe just not what I was expecting. Next time I make it I will add a jalapeno or two, potatoes, and reduce the lentils by 1/2 pound. But there will definitely be a next time!
