A Middle Eastern dish with a deliciously simple taste. Serve with rice or couscous.
This was just delicious! I did use vegetable stock instead of water plus I used tinned peeled plum tomatoes. But the end result was just yummy! Will be making this often. - 07 Aug 2015
Excellent! I chopped four garlic cloves, half an onion, one red bell pepper and a can of diced, stewed tomatoes (drained) as the base, sauteed those, then added 1.5 cups of lentils, 2 cups of chicken broth, 1 cup of water and simmered for about an hour, and these lentils came out fantastic! I added salt and a dash of cumin after they were cooked, and they made a meal all by themselves. Great recipe...thanks for posting. - 12 Sep 2007 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
Very tasty! I amended the recipe per some suggestions, and added some things of my own: I added fresh garlic in with the onions and green pepper, along with a little bit of ground cumin, used one 28 oz. can of diced tomatoes (w/garlic) instead of fresh, added some frozen spinach, and about 1/3 cup fresh chopped cilantro. Served over rice, a nicely flavored, hearty meal. - 23 Feb 2005 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
