This is a low fat, not too bad on the calories recipe. Really satisfying, especially on cold days. It can be a meal in itself

I added a little less red pepper to make it less bland.

This was nice, but a tad too garlicky for me. I used yellow lentils, and had this with fresh bread for a satisfying lunch. Next time I'll try this with onions instead of garlic.
