Savory Pumpkin Brown Lentils

READY IN: 25mins
Recipe by the80srule

Needed to use up some canned pumpkin and I loooove brown lentils. How convenient I also had some veggie broth to use up! I had just under 3 cups of broth so I added some water to even it out to get a full batch of lentils using the 1:3 ratio for brown lentils - liquid. Makes a nice side dish, goes great with broccoli and tofu!
