      This was a pleasure for tonights dinner. It's solid and satisfying while being very light in fats. And I just noticed as I write this that I totally forgot the peas and tomatoes. I think that they would have been a great addition, LOL. Well, having admitted what an idiot I am, all I can say is that the lentils, rice and seasonings where yummy by themselves and quite filling.

      This was fabulous!!!! I loved it! Yes I didn`t make as directed but I`m sure it would have been just as good when following the recipe. I used brown rice adding it to 3 1/2 cups water for 20 minutes before adding red lentils (I really thought I had brown lentils which would be just as grand as what I enjoyed)and then cooked for 20 more minutes. I used Crosse & Blackwell hot mango chutney, which was very good and the cilantro is a must! Thank you for the healthy wonderful eats!
