    My family loved this recipe. We used fresh rather than frozen onions, and added a half teaspoon more salt. When I made it a second time I used half red lentils and cooked in crock pot. When using the crock pot I boiled the water and added to other ingredients. Served with brown rice and cheese - 10/30/09

    This tasted good and was very easy to make. We like our food with a little kick, so we all added hot sauce to our individual bowls. I will make this again. - 1/13/11

    Tried making it and it came out delicious! I added a few items like chilis Serranos(to give it a kick), cilantro and garlic. At the end I also added a squirt of lemon and that completed the stew! - 1/12/11

    Very Good! Easy to make and you can substitute favorite vegetables. I use a sweet potato instead of regular potato and spice it a bit with pepper flakes and cumin. - 1/12/11

  • My 12 year old son makes this with Better Than Broth beef broth (health food store) and diced ham. It is yummy and still reasonable in calorie count. He also sometimes adds a 15 oz. can of tomato sauce. Great for a cold day like today (High of 11 degrees celsius!) - 12/11/13

  • MMmm, subbed the sweet potato, added carrots and celery and some Ortega green taco sauce to add a little zip - just right with some fresh crusty Italian grain bread! - 1/21/11
