    "Pink Eyed" Jim Cortina's Note:

    Wonderful stew, can be a vegetarian meal on its own. Or you can add some diced or shredded smoked duck, if you like meat. The red lentils break down, and cause this to be like a really rich soup. If you need to stretch this out, you can serve it over white rice, to do a sort of "beans and rice" thing.

      This stew made for a healthy, hearty lunch. It was extremely easy to make. I used a combination of No Chicken Broth (vegetarian chicken broth) and vegetable broth. I'm out of chipotle hot sauce, so I used Cholula hot sauce. I doubled the amount and added salt and pepper taste. Thanks for posting.

      I've tried several red lentil stews, and this one is my favorite. I love the cumin and the touch of Tabasco (I used regular, since my store didn't have chipotle). I serve it over egg noodles, since I'm not a rice lover. It was a big hit with my boyfriend, too. Great meatless recipe, thanks for sharing it, Jim!

      This was a great recipe for my lunches. I put it over 1/2 c brown rice. It was the perfect lunch for a crisp Fall day.
