"My husband's favorite. The cinnamon gives this stew a different twist. It will thicken as it sits, so I make it a little soupy to begin with and serve with some crusty bread to soak up the juices."

"Wow! Very good stew. I changed it bit, from vegetarian to a meat stew. Browned the beef and used beef stock instead, but as is this would still be a 5 star rating. Like another reviewer here, I did have to simmer this closer to 2 hours to soften the lentils. Love the cumin/brown sugar/cinnamon twist. I make many different lentil soups, but this is now one of our top 3. :)"
"Just made this in the pressure cooker, took only 15 minutes to cook! Tried a mouthful and it was too hot, but gooooooood. Waiting impatiently for this to cool, and might top it with some grated cheese. Everything tastes better with cheese!"
"My husband really enjoyed this, especially because of the cinnamon! Mahalo!"
"This was very tasty indeed, but it took way longer than 45 min. for the lentils to cook properly (more like 1 hr. 15 min) and I had to keep on adding broth to keep it from burning. I left out the cinnamon and parsley."
"I decided to try this in the slowcooker,it came out very tasty-I prepared steps 1-4 and then transfered it all+the rest of ingredients to the "cooker" in the evening&stuck in fridge,started to cook on low the next morning as I left for work and in the evening it ready.Husband & I liked it, kids didn't :( Thanks"
"Such a nice, warming dish to have on a cold winter day. And healthy too! Like Chia, I added a bit more heat, but very much enjoyed this. Thanks, BM!"
"I just love lentil soups and salads. This legume is so versitile but has a wonderful earthy flavor all its own. This recipe really makes the best of those qualities and takes lentil soup in a new direction. In the midst of the Zaar World Tour so I only made 1/2 a batch, quite regrettable as I would have enjoyed this again and again. I used half the suggested oil and added a pinch of cinnamon to the soup and otherwise prepared as directed. Quite a bit of liquid evaporated after 30 minutes so I added an additional 1/2 cup of vegetable stock. Sooo good and comforting. Thanks Bunny Mom. "
"A hearty, nicely seasoned stew...My tomatoes were not very juicy, so I added quite a bit of water. My end result was more like a casserole than a soup, but still good. Tomatoes with cinnamon is a new combo for me, so thanks for sharing this one!"
"this was very good, comfort food. i had a cup of mixed lentils from whole foods and some barley to use up so this was perfect. i used extra cumin and added some cayenne . the cinnamon stick was a nice addition. this is the kind of stew that tastes even better the next day, a keeper."
"Made this last night with homemeade buns (#71373) and what a delightful meal. I didn't add the cinnamon since I was out. I also halved the recipe and that worked well. I had to keep adding water to keep it a bit soupy as it simmered. Thanks for a great recipe."
