      I tried this recipe after seeing it on Ina's show on TV. Our family loves it and I always make it as is. Note it does make a lot of lentils - we always have leftovers so I now cut that part of the recipe back. Glad you posted this - thanks!

      I saw the episode where Ina made these lentils. They are fantastic! What a great tasting and healthy side dish. I didn't have leeks so I sub green onions. Came out perfect. This recipe as is makes alot - so I cut it in half and we got about 4 servings out of it. I highly recommend this dish!

      Fantastic dish. I've seen this prepared on Barefoot Contessa twice now so I just had to make it. I didn't have leeks so used all yellow onion. That splash of red wine vinegar at the end really caps this off. Thanks!
