Very good and simple. Added onion with the garlic and used barley instead of rice. Just increased the water a little. Thanks
This.Was.Awesome. I made this with green lentils and both my baby and my husband loved this dish. I also ran out of ground cumin so I substituted garam masala and it rocked. Thank for this great recipe.
Very nice combination of flavors. The only change that we will make is next time we'll saute onions with the garlic, mushrooms, and carrots. We'll also soak the lentils for at least 4-6 hours before using them as they were still a little crunchy. Very tasty dish overall! Thanks!!!
I made this for supper tonight and we really liked it. I subbed swiss chard and kale for the spinach. It was easy to make and very filling. Love the Looneyspoon series cookbooks. Thanks for the recipe.
I made this to go along with Best Ever Chicken Balti. I only soaked the red lentils for 3 hours and the recipe is not only delicious but nutritious. Do try this meal.
This was great! Made it for a Friday night stay-at-home meal. Had to wait for DH to arrive from the store with the red lentils and ginger. There was no problem getting the lentils to be a lovely consistency in the allotted cooking time. I worried that the seasonings would be too intense, but it was perfect. Spinach was a nice touch. Didn't have any green onion, so I used chopped onion at the beginning. Yum!
Made this for a Sunday lunch, it was excellent and I have already distributed the recipe to a couple of the guests! It is a definite make-again, even the youngsters enjoyed it. I stuck to recipe, EXCEPT I put the mushrooms in a little later than indicated, I added them on top of the mixture once I had turned it down to simmer, gently folded them in, and then covered the pot. I also omitted the spinach... actually, I forgot the spinach, people were beginning to arrive and my mind was beginning to fluster a little! I used no-soak lentils, they cooked perfectly in the recipe time, even on the bag, it stipulates to cook for 20 minutes, with no soaking. Thanks for another excellent recipe, Jen, this was very very much enjoyed by all and I got a lot of compliments for it!
