Loved this recipe, I used green lentils and brown basmatic rice with 6 cups of chicken broth. It turned out great. Topped it with a bit of cheese and chili pepper flakes because I like spicy. Will make this again and again. Thanks for sharing

Good vegan comfort food. I used the Auto setting on my crockpot which has an hour on high and the rest of the time on low. This worked well with the basmati rice and mix of brown and puy lentils that I used. In fact it probably didn't need the 4 hours that it got and I probably could have gotten away with 2-3 hours judging by the look of it before we headed off to sports practice.

I wanted to like this because it was so healthy and easy, and it smelled really good. Just didn't do it for me, though. I ended up adding a ton of hot sauce.

The flavor of this is really interesting. It was a very gross looking meal. The rice became mush and the lentils stayed hard. If (a big If) I make this again I think I will cook them individually and mix them before serving.

What a great recipe! I made this for dinner and served it over some fresh onion naan. i wasn't expecting for the flavors to work so nicely together. it was absolutely delicious. i didn't have any problems with the texture however i did turn off the crock pot an hour early because it seemed ready to me. (so i only cooked it on high for 3 hours and then left it on warm for about 30 min.) it turned out great. thanks roosie!

I really loved this recipe. The crockpot made it INCREDIBLY easy. I cooked it on high about 3.5 hours and used brown rice and brown lentils. I tasted great with Texas Pete Vinegar pepper sauce. My husband had 3 bowls!

Very good combination of flavors and so easy to make! The house smelled wonderful! The dish comes our very mushy, so would go well with a nice crisp salad. Thank you for sharing!

This was very nice and we enjoyed it for dinner. I used long-grain Basmati rice and Homemade Maggi vegetable broth with onions for the broth. Will make this again. Thank you for sharing:)

You don't use rice you use orzo, pasta that looks like rice. you only cook the lentils for a long time add the pasta about 40 minutes before its done. Grew up on this dish and it still is a personal favorite

Great start! It cooked perfectly, and the texture was awesome, but it needed tons more flavor and spice! I'd make it again, but with some seasoning modifications. Great start to a comforting, filling vegan favorite.
