      I love this! It's great for parties, but when making it at home I use a muffin tin so the leftovers are easy to store! Speaking of leftovers... this makes a killer stuffing for cabbage rolls!

      My husband & I are very health conscious vegans who eat lentils all the time. My husband, who usually eats anything, refused to eat this meal. He kept remarking about how gross it was. I thought it was OK smothered with some tasty gravy but by itself it was mush and bland.
