This was good, but unfortunately I couldn't taste the cranberries. They re-hydrated themselves during cooking and their texture and flavor just disappeared. Next time, I will add the cranberries just a few minutes before serving. But overall, we enjoyed it. Thanks!
Tasty and very easy. The cranberries give a touch of sweetness. I used brown rice, puy lentils, and an extra cup of water.
A good healthy standby meal using items that we usually have in the pantry. I use brown rice and top with some really good olive oil, which really adds to the dish.
