Nutrition & Calorie Comments  

Delish! Very filling and low in calorie. I will make this over and over again. The only thing I would add is that when I stirred after 45 minutes I found it completely dry and so I added another cup of broth, but water would work as well. This was a perfect lunch! Submitted by:

I tweaked this a bit because I didn't have swiss cheese on hand, made it with Pepperjack and low sodium beef broth. I also doubled the spices and onion for my taste. Yummy! Submitted by:

I love this recipe. I add extra fresh gound pepper and some times change to reduce fat cheddar. Submitted by:

This was very good, but I followed another member's suggestion and added salsa. I also had a 1/4 less cheese. I don't know how it would have been without the salsa, but the extra 44 calories a serving was totally worth the taste. This is one of my favorite meals ever, and it was so incredibly easy.

Very pleasant surprise. Smells delish & tastes very good. Didn't have the cheese -didn't need it. I had a "culinary broth" that had the herbs and wine & added my own. Next time will use a low sodium variety - but I will make it again. Submitted by:

This recipe is a great, simple way to enjoy lentils and brown rice and was very good just as is! I also enjoy the potential for experimenting. The second time, I added a 1/4 c more rice and 1 cup crushed tomatoes. WOW! Very flavourful! Can reduce sodium by using 1 c water, 1 c chicken broth, too! Submitted by:

Fantastic tasting. I added some Mild Rotel to the ingredients to rev up the taste & metabolism/calorie burning. This will become a Winter family favorite.
Thank you for sharing this great meatless recipe!

It was delicious! And Sarahsueblue is right...it kind of has a meaty texture!

I love it because it kind of tastes like a cheeseburger. I used reduced fat shredded mozzarella instead because I don't like swiss. But was DELICIOUS!

Super yummy! I used reduced fat jack instead of Swiss cheese, and used parmesan on top so it got nice and crispy. Delicious!! Submitted by:
