    Happy Hippie's Note:

    Yet another recipe I discovered on the "World Hearth Circle of International Cooking." This looks promising as a meatless main dish or a side dish.

      I haven't made this yet, but other recipes I have seen have a spicy tomatoe sauce on top, then garnished with crisp fried onions. This seems like it would be better with the sauce. Maybe if I combined two recipes? hmmmmm....

      A nice side dish. I think it would be more traditional to include tomato sauce & pasta. It definitely needs something with a bolder flavor to go into or along with it.

      I made this for dinner tonight. It was really good, but I had to double the water to cook the rice. I cooked the onion for much longer and because I used puy lentils, they also needed much longer cooking (than just the 5 minutes in step 3). I opted to use double the pepper and cumin and use chicken stock rather than water and salt. Don't get me wrong, the end result was excellent and I want to make this again!
