      Excellent! I used petit french green lentils 'cause that's what I had. It only took one hour (not two) to reach the texture I like. After it sat for an hour all the spices really kicked in. I am a happy dude.

      This was a hearty meal that we really enjoyed. I served mashed sweet potatoes and mean chef's Lemon Butter Broccoli with this. I actually didn't let it cook down as much and it was still rather soupy, which suited us just fine! Thanks for posting!

      This was simply fabulous! I love lentils, especially made like this... so this made for a fabulous dish for us! I didnt make the whole recipe as 12 servings is just way too much for us. I halved it so that I would have leftovers. I used a bit more spices than required for 1/2 of the recipe as we really like the kick :-) The only thing I did do different was to use vegetable broth instead of chicken broth, because it was all that I had on hand at the its what I generally use in most of the dishes that I make. Thanks for this recipe! I will be making this again..soon :-)
