    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)

    This is a great, quick recipe! We made a couple of adjustments--I used veggie broth instead of water and put in a little extra to make it soupier, subbed in oregano because we were out of tarragon, and used tomatoes with green chilies instead of plain--and it turned out amazing. I'd never had coconut strings in a main dish before, but they added amazing texture and flavor.  -  19 Apr 2018  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
