    So Cal Gal's Note:

    So simple, yet so good! A great side dish or cracker spread. Be sure to use freshly ground pepper in this, as it makes a big difference in the flavor. (Slightly adapted from a recipe in The Low Oxalate Cookbook, Book Two.)

      So good - and one of our favorite meals, along with broccoli or green beans. I omit the onion & garlic powder in favor of fresh onion & garlic cooked along with the lentils like some other reviewers suggested.

      I made some changes to this one, with favorable results. I fried a bit of onion and garlic in some butter before adding the lentils and cut out the dry spices. Also, when the lentils were ready, I tossed in dash or two of bread crumbs to make the consistency more like mashed potatoes; just enough to get the lentils a little tacky. Great side dish for vegetarian comfort foods. Thanks for the recipe!
