      This came out great. Great flavor, I used 1 tsp fresh ground cumin and 1/2 tsp Arbol Chile powder. The lentils were a little overcooked for my taste so I will either add them a little later in the process or better yet switch to French Green lentils. I could see this as a great side dish but this time I added some chicken sausage and called it a one bowl meal.

      Yum! Came out great! I used a brown rice medley from Trader Joe's. I used approx. 1 tsp cayenne pepper, 2 tsp cumin and about 2 tablespoons lemon juice (give or take a half tbsp - I test tasted the broth as I went along). I did have to add another cup of water to it about 30 minutes into cooking. I also let it cook longer than stated, probably about an hour altogether to be sure all the liquid was soaked up. It was flavorful with a nice kick to it at the end of each bite!

      Delicious! Being a jazz singer, I felt free to improvise a bit--subbing lime juice; cooking in veg stock; seasoning also with cinammon; fresh mint and cilantro; and topping with fresh chopped mint, cilantro and sunflower seeds for additional texture. It was YUMMY. ;)))
