Very yummy recipe. I make it with 16 oz of lentils, triple the other ingredients, and I add about 3T cumin, 1T curry to the lentils as they cook. I find the lentils take about 35-40 min to cook. It is a fabulous recipe to make in advance, and lasts quite a while. One of my family's favorites - thanks!

This was delicious! I made this once following the recipe, and we thought it was good. I tried it again and added a few things. Instead of olive oil, I used fat free italian dressing. I also added a tablespoon of apple cider vinegar and 2 diced tomatoes. Yum!

So good I made it twice this week! I didn't use the Bay Leaf or the Celery, as I had none, but I did add a couple of pinches of Celery Seed which seemed to really boost the flavor. I also made extra dressing, as it was a little dry at first. I used Puy Lentils(French) , and it was fabulous!!!
