What a great, healthy meal! I started the lentils and garlic soaking in the morning. Chopped the onion, carrots and celery so they would be ready to go as soon as I got home. I used small red potatoes, quartered and only cooked this until the lentils and vegetables were tender. Perfect. If you were to cook this for the stated one and half hours I think you would need more broth. Thanks for a tasty and easy supper. - 17 Sep 2012
