    Amazingly good - what a comforting dish. I also cut the oil in half to 2 tbsp and used 3.5 cups of water rather than 4.5, and it came out perfectly. And yes, no need to soak the lentils beforehand. - 1/30/08

    This dish is really tasty and I also cut the oil down to 2 tbs. It is definetaly a dish that I will make again. It is a shame that leeks can be kind of hard to find. Thank you for sharing. - 3/21/08

    This was very easy and really yummy. I cut the water down to 3 1/2 cups, as recommended above, and it was the perfect consistency. I also cut the oil to 2 TBSP. A keeper! - 1/27/08

    Very easy and very good - also good cold as a salad w some vinaigrette. I used less oil (about 2 tablespoons) which was plenty. Next time I'd use less water. I was surprised, but this met the approval of my husband, too. - 7/16/07
