    After 20 minutes, the lentils were still crunchy. I had to add more water and cook for another 20 minutes. It wasn't very flavorful. I wouldn't make it again. - 7/24/12

    Even adding garlic and crushed red pepper, this was pretty bland. It was easy and I agree, very filling. Probably won't make again. - 6/19/12

  • Fabulous! I pre-cooked the lentils right before I made this recipe and they turned out great. I added some garlic for flavor and it was fabulous. - 1/6/11
