This turned out much better than I expected with a couple of tweaks. As written it seems it would be filling but a tad bland. I used a venison sausage, added some chili powder and garlic along with the cumin, and some tomato sauce as well. Definitely making this again with those adjustments!

Very good! Something unique & different for a change! Very fast and easy to make! We used the Polish sausage, but I added a little more than what was called for, to even out more with the lentils!

For lentils this was actually pretty good! I never know what to do with the lentils I have in my pantry, and this was quite tasty, and QUICK! I used turkey polska keilbasa and served it with sauted paper-thin sliced carrots and onions. It took a lot of salt and pepper to make it palatable at first, but the end result was great, especially when I mixed in the extra vegetables. Looking forward to lunch tomorrow!
