    I am adding to my previous comment that I now cook this in my Insta Pot pressure cooker. So much easier and faster with less watching the liquid level. The lentils came out so much softer and well cooked. I highly suggest pressure cooking this recipe.  -  20 Apr 2017  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    Really really enjoyed this! I served it on top of steamed Jasmine rice. Did not use any oil and just left the onions to cook into the tomato juice. Also used vegetable broth which simmered down nicely during the cooking. Used a whole pepper which I roasted for about 45 minutes at 375F before incorporating it into the stew. Added fennel seeds, chili flakes, and thyme instead of tarragon because I did not have the latter on hand. Really good dish  -  19 Feb 2019  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
