    This recipe is a great, simple way to enjoy lentils and brown rice and was very good just as is! I also enjoy the potential for experimenting. The second time, I added a 1/4 c more rice and 1 cup crushed tomatoes. WOW! Very flavourful! Can reduce sodium by using 1 c water, 1 c chicken broth, too! - 2/6/10

    Very tasty. This is an amazing, hearty meal/side. I used all vegetable broth for liquid and put it in the crock pot over lunch like others recommended. It was ready for me when I got home. Cheers! to LILLAKE for sharing this recipe. - 7/30/10

    Fantastic tasting. I added some Mild Rotel to the ingredients to rev up the taste & metabolism/calorie burning. This will become a Winter family favorite.
    Thank you for sharing this great meatless recipe!
