      One of my favorite recipes! I think lentil soups can taste so....lentily... but this is stellar. I did use 1 tbs of pickled ginger and no chilies, and pepper to taste. I made it on the stovetop, I think it's much easier then slowcooking because it only takes 12 minutes to cook lentils. Next time I will remember to put 1 Tbs vinegar in the poaching liquid and turn it down!

      This is a delicious and very healthy recipe that was a cinch to make in the crock pot. I was a bit apprehensive based on the previous review, but my lentils were definitely soft enough. As a note, I doubled the recipe and used light coconut milk. We'll definitely be making this again!

      YUM! Only THE PICKY ONE didn't finish although she claimed to like it. I did double the recipe - 4 servings usually won't feed this crowd! Very easy. The lentils didn't cook through - they remained very firm??? We ate it anyway, lol. Made for Asian Accent event in the photo forum 3/09.
