Super easy, but I think I should have cooked it a little longer because the lentiles still had a bit of a bite to them.

Super yummy! Just make sure you allow enough time to cook the rice as that can take up to 40 minutes alone. To speed up the cooking, I have cooked the rice separately, then added it in later. Just make sure that you use less water or broth (4 cups or even less).

I'm so glad you posted this recipe. I wanted to make something healthy for dinner, but didn't expect this to taste as good as it did. I used barley instead of brown rice, tripled the garlic, added cabbage, but follow the recipe other than that. This recipe makes a ton and look forward to eating this for a few lunches. Thanks for posting.

I like this. I did take some liberties with the vegetables. I used more celery, added some cabbage, and used less tomatoes than the recipe called for. I was afraid that the full amount of tomatoes would make it too tomatoey, but after sampling this, I think you could probably put in the full amount with no problem. A nice, flavorful stew/soup. I don't usually bother with cooking times given in a recipe, so I can't say whether they are accurate or not. Thank you for a nice recipe.
