This is a nice lentil recipe but found that the carrots cooked too much. Next time I will add the carrots near the end so that they will be alittle crunchy and not soft.

Originally made Nov.19 : I doubled the recipe for my 6L crockpot and brought this to a potluck dinner. 3L got eaten up and I had 3L left to freeze. Itz a good comfort food! Dec.5 : Thawed for dinner. Came out more like a soup, which was still good. I added grilled (cubed)chicken and parmesan cheese! yummy!

Great taste but slow is the operative word here ! I am just a novice using my slow cooker but mine needed up to 2 hours longer than stated in the recipe - maybe my high setting isn't high enough. Good result but just not in time for dinner. Certainly good for my learning curve !!
