I would have rated this a little higher if not there being too much black pepper. I read Carol’s bio after preparing and she doesn’t take exact measurements, so I should have followed my instincts and not used a whole teaspoon of black pepper. I did however, stop at two full Tablespoons of garlic since I wanted to be able to sleep in the same room with my husband at night and not have my breath require that I leave. !! Also, there seemed to be too much of something else and I just couldn’t figure it out? Coriander maybe?? I can never go wrong with cumin so that’s not it. I will make this again as I absolutely love Lentils, but I will go easier on some of the spices. Also, I threw everything except for the shallots (which I didn’t have) into my pressure cooker and cooked on high for 10 minutes and presto—all done. It is true that you do not need to spice as much when using a pressure cooker so it’s probably my own doing! Thanks for sharing this Carol :)
