    This is another winning recipe. It's a great tasting and healthy dish that I enjoyed very much. I did find that I needed to add another 1/4 cup of water and 15 more mins. The rice and lentils were still on the crunchy side in the given time after standing. I used anise seed in place of the fennel and dark raisins as that's what I have. It all came together with a marvelous aroma and wonderful taste. Thanks Barb, you have been a great PAC baby and I'm sorry to see you leave home but I think that you'll do very well in the world, very well indeed:D
