    Yummy! I really enjoyed this. In order to cut down on prep time, I used pre-cooked lentils and pre-cooked brown rice - both from Trader Joe's - so this came together very quickly for me. Delicious! - 4/15/07

    I would make this again but i would use different spices. I also added oat bran to make it stick together in the loaf. It worked out perfect and was perfect to cut up into slices of loaf. - 7/12/08

    I enjoyed this more than I expected to. My husband is not a big fan of the texture, but he agreed that the flavor was excellent and he's going to try and get used to a little different texture. I'm going to stuff red pepper with the leftovers this weekend -- I think that will work well! - 11/30/07

    I use A LOT more herbs to this. Worchestire sauce and rosemary are big helps. If you have trouble mashing the lentils, mash them when there is still some water in the pan. It really works well for the adults and kids in my family. - 10/10/08
