    FloridaNative's Note:

    This is a tasty combination. I got this recipe from a friend. I use the French lentils as they do not break apart as much as red or yellow lentils.

      I really enjoyed this. The flavoring is very sublte but perfect. I did use MEXICAN stewed tomatoes and omitted the cayenne. I didn't quite understand the part about setting aside the liquid of the tomatoes, just to turn around and put it into the pot, so I didn't do that and it turned out fine. THANKS!

      My family enjoyed this dish. I sauteed the onions and added fresh garlic and red pepper. I used vegtable broth and included the liquid from the crushed tomatoes as part of the 1 cup of water. I will make this again.

      Very easy, very tasty. To me this was a vegetarian version of chili, since I used veggie stock instead of the chicken stock. I guess that would actually make it vegan. I used a mixture of brown and red lentils, because I wanted it to be really thick. The rice kind of got lost in here, but I love lentils so that was the big draw for me anyway. I also added some smoked paprika at the end. Made for Potluck tag. Thanks, FloridaNative!
