  • This turned out okay, but I didn't love it. I did add onion to the recipe which gave it a bit more flavor. The lentils took a lot longer then 10 minutes to cook to soft, so that was disappointing. I think they would have more flavor if cooked in chicken or veggie broth, then when cooked in water. - 2/10/08
