      The beauty of this recipe is in its simplicity, accompanied by the fact that it tastes absolutely fantastic!!! The garlic compliments the tang of the tomatoes perfectly. I did have to add some more water because the lentils just sucked them up, but besides that all the amounts given in the recipe are perfect! I had this in one bowl over "tortilla" chips made from chappatis for a scrumptious and satisfying dinner. Diana, thank you so much for this!

      This was really delicious. The lemon juice is the winning ingredient in this recipe. I enjoyed this for lunch this afternoon with low-fat yogurt and bread, thanks for sharing! BTW, I followed Anu's suggestion and added more water as the lentils really soaked up the water pretty quick!

      This was a quick and easy recipe that has a BIG flavor. I did not have any fresh tomatoes so I added a 16oz can of diced tomatoes along with the juices and it added even more flavor. I also added a little bit of basil and cumin and of course, crushed pepper but thats because I like it hot!
