Spiced Lentils

READY IN: 25mins
Recipe by dicentra

This is really yummy. It can be used as a stuffing for mini pumpkins or tomatoes. I served it over some plain brown rice with mango chutney. It does make lots of leftovers and is pretty good cold the next day.

All I could taste was tomato and sugar. My spices are fresh, some of them ground just for this recipe, but they just couldn't stand up to the sweet. Nobody at my house would eat it.
