This recipe is a great quick breakfast for those of us who worship cilantro like a guru and would like to be able to measure our consumption in 'bunches.'
Very quick and cheap -- I make a big pot of these lentils on Sunday night, split into four containers, and have healthy and fulfilling lunches for the week.
Could very easily be made vegetarian by substituting vegetable broth instead of the chicken stock.
A quick tasty muffin to go with soup or chili, or for a fulfilling breakfast! Two muffins = one serving.
