    Lentils and orange make such a wonderful pairing. I have always limited my lentil intake to tossing a handful into soups and stews, so this was a nice change of pace for me. The fresh orange juice, I think, was the secret here. And the orange segments gave it such a sweet cirtus bounce and the onions livened up the lentils with a zesty "bite". I enjoyed it. Thanks, Dreamer in Ontario.
