    spatchcock's Note:

    Oh, yum, yum...I bought a big bottle of whole cloves at Sam's a while ago and found this recipe to use them. It is fantastic. I pretty much followed it exactly, except for the garlic change. I also added two diced Roma tomatoes. It is very healthy--low fat, with only 2 tsp olive oil!!--and authentic-tasting.

      Absolutely delicious! I really really liked the Middle Eastern flavour. I tried it as a salad and also as filling for a pita sandwich, along with some spinach leaves. Excellent both ways! I used French lentils. I used 2 cloves garlic, and added 1 small diced tomato. I roasted one small red pepper, and when it was peeled and chopped it wasn't quite enough. Easy to make, and very tasty! I will be making this again.

      Delicious if you like a cold lentil dish. I used fresh mint instead of dried and doubled the cumin. And threw in about 2 tbsp fresh parsley. I served it with plain yogurt. This is a great recipe.

      It was very good! Maybe next time I'll add more of the roasted red pepper. All in all, excellent flavour, good balance, thank you for the recipe!
