      I enjoyed this a lot. I too used spicy salsa instead of our winter tomatoes. I thought the 2 tablespoons of ginger would be overpowering but I was wrong. I dry cooked the mustard seeds till they popped. And pureed the whole mixture when done. I forgot the lemon didn`t need it. Thanks for a great recipe!

      I like the flavor of this dish. I did make a few changes. I used veg. chicken flavored broth to cook the lentils in, left out the serrano chili, instead of the tomato I added a tbls. of hot salsa. All in all, this turned out great! Oh, I cooked buffalo wings for my husband and added a little of the sauce to the lentils. Yum- thanks chia!
