      This was very good!!! But I increased the spices a bit, used only 3 cups water as another reviewer suggested and felt that it needed a bit more salt and pepper as well. Very hearty and very healthy. I ate it plain without the rice. Thanks for posting!

      I tried making this the other night, and it turned out not bad, using 3 C of water instead of 4 as recommended by Happy Harry #2. I often find lentil dishes turn out somewhat bland, which was the case with this. The ingredients are simple and easy to find, it is a healthy meal, and the taste is quite nice - perhaps with a bit more spices it would be less bland.

      OMG!! This is SOOO good! It meets everything I love and need. I need to have lots of iron and this covers that...I LOVE eggplant. This is low-fat, high in protein, plenty of fiber, but most of all, IT TASTES GREAT!! Can you tell I'm excited? I did a little tweaking..cut salt to 1/4 tsp. and only used 3 cups of water which was just right since the tomatoes gave off a lot of liquid, and used 3 garlic cloves. NurseDi, thank you so much!
