Yes! This was a first class rice recipe, nice enough that I served it at easter dinner. I made a few small changes. As I was eating,I did notice that a tiny amount of table salt really brought out the flavor of this one. I don't know that I would add salt into the preparations, just keep it handy at the table. I prefer the taste and texture of brown rice, so I subbed that in place of the white rice. I also think that the longer cooking time needed for brown rice is appropriate for lentils. I used chicken broth rather than the veg. broth, since that is what I had on hand. Left out the celery and tomatoes, but added about 8 ounces of diced fresh mushrooms when I combined the broth/rice/barley with the other veggies. Definitely needed longer than 20 minutes, but I just kept checking it as I prepared the other dishes. I would consider serving this as a meatless meal, with a tossed salad and bread.



Really tasty. I used brown rice also, so it took almost an hour to cook. The lentils got a little mushy, but everyone who tasted it liked it. I will be making this again. Great way to eat lentils.



It was okay but maybe I just didn't do it right because the Lentils were a little hard while everything else was fine.
