    DancesInGarden's Note:

    This is a thick, hearty stew-like soup. Add more stock or water to make it thinner if you like it more soupy. Or spoon some into a bowl and top with cheese, then heat until the cheese melts and scoop up with whole wheat pita or whole wheat tortillas. I use my home grown tomatoes that have been peeled and seeded and stewed in their own juices. Canned tomatoes are a fine substitute.

      Delicious stew! I used brown basmati rice and started with the rice instead of the lentils because my red lentils use to fall apart after 15 minutes of cooking time. It worked great this way, and we loved the stew :) Thanks for sharing!<br/>Made for PAC Spring 2014
