This is an excellent way to prepare lentils. Super simple, healthy, and great tasting. I used beef broth because I used up all my chicken broth making soup. It was a good substitution. This would make a nice side dish, but I had it for lunch along with a side salad. Thanks for a great recipe.

This is such a yummy pilaf!!! I really luv the combination of flavours in this dish! The lentils go so well with the other veggies and the garlic and cayenne add a nice touch of heat. I had this as a light lunch using red basil in place of parsley and mixed bell peppers as thats what I had on hand. Mmmmm, is all I can say! :) Ill certainly make it again, cause its so good for you and also super tasty! THANKS SO MUCH for sharing this gem with us, Derf! Made and reviewed for Veg'n'Swap #15 as a recipenap.

Very good, simple, and healthy. I found that the times listed in this recipe were exactly right, too. Now I just have to make sure I find that smashed garlic clove before I bite into it! :) Thanks for sharing!

Yumm, this turned out great. I served it as a main dish with a side of steamed veggies. This is perfect for a quick weeknight meal. Only change I made was to use low-sodium veggie broth. Thanks for posting, this is a keeper.
