I loved this dish, and my husband, who is not a big fan of lentils, thoroughly enjoyed it. I followed others' suggestions, using chicken broth to cook the lentils and rice, and added a bit more salt. In addition, I added 4 sliced garlic cloves to the cooking lentils and rice, along with a teaspoon of cumin. Very tasty!
This was heavenly! Perfect accompaniment to a fall harvest salad.
I used only 1/2 jalapeno, concerned it might be too spicy for my mother in law, and she loved it, as did my husband and guests. Clean, warm taste, not "hot". Next time, I will add an additional clove garlic, as we like garlic, in this household.
Loved this dish with turkey, stuffed with limes and jalapeno peppers, last night! Was looking for a dish my mother-in-law, who doesn't like carrots, would enjoy, and one that would compliment a Mexican themed Canadian Thanksgiving supper. She loved them! After reading some other helpful reviews, I substituted cinnamon for the black pepper, and heated on low for 2 minutes after adding brown sugar, to thicken up the sauce. I will be making this again, tonight, for family who missed our turkey supper last night.
This is also delicious with grilled steaks. I use dill seed or weed in both rubs and marinades for beef, as it adds sweetness, without being sweet.This dish is easy and lovely, especially if you enjoy dill pickles or other dilled vegetables. This is in my permanent list of recipes!
A real family favorite, in my household. A did not have seasoning salt, as we are trying to cut down on sodium intake, so I added 1/2 teaspoon Mrs. Dash, with dashes of garlic and onion powder. It was delicious!
We love this recipe, and my husband has asked me to make it for a dinner party. I made this recipe with the following changes: I marinated the chicken breasts in the balsamic vinegar in a plastic bag for 30 minutes. I started the sauce ingredients in a small saucepan ten minutes before the marinating time was up. I accidentally added 1/2 teaspoon thyme, but we love thyme with chicken, and I plan to make this exactly that way, next time. I used the George Foreman grill, grilling the mushrooms first for three minutes, then grilling the chicken breasts for 4 minutes. I added the mushrooms 7 minutes before the sauce and chicken was done. Other than that, I used all the listed ingredients, and it was delicious. I served this with white and wild rice and green beans. My mother in law, who takes a lot of coaxing to get enough protien dishes, loved this!
I served this with a thyme and rosemary seasoned pork roast last night. I scaled it to four servings, as we are a small family. Otherwise, I followed the recipe exactly. My husband, who always said he "hates" rutabagas and parsnips, loved this recipe. He went back for thirds! My mother-in-law also loved this, and I will definitely make this again. Peeling all the vegetables was worth the effort.
I have served this twice, and my family loves this soup. The only change I made is that I serve a shot glass of sherry with each serving, for each person to stir into their bowl as they like. I had pea soup served this way in Big Sur, years ago, and family likes it this way.
This was GREAT! I did not have fresh mushrooms, (small town, the store was all out) so used 14 oz. of canned mushrooms. I poured the wine over the drained mushrooms to marinate about a ahlf hour before cooking. I added a bit more wine to the sauce while cooking. I also had to use a grainy mustard, rather than Dijon, but added a sweet onion mustard, to make it more like Dijon mustard. I will definitely be making this easy, delicious recipe again.
This was delicious! I did not have sage (unforgiveable, but I live in a small town!) so I used an Italian herb blend and added one half teaspoon additional rosemary. Otherwise, I followed the recipe exactly. It was wonderful! My mother-in-law's reaction is my benchmark, as she is very fussy about meals. She also loved this. She pointed out that this could easily use any plain, canned beans. Good to know. I definitely plan to make this, again. It was easy to fix after work, nutritious, and my family loved it; what more could you want?
Great recipe, but I did not use the sugar, and I mixed half balsamic vinegar, half raspberry vinegar. I simply forgot the sugar, but it was not missed. I liked this so much, and we still have strawberries and spinach left over, so I will be trying it, again, tonight, with half the sugar called for added in.
