My husband and I both enjoyed this dish although we both felt it was a little bland as written. I cooked the dried lentils in vegetable broth used brown rice and added more minced garlic and some balsamic vinegar to the tomato mixture that went in the bottom of the baking dish. I served this over raw baby spinach so the sauce and heat from the tomato wilted the spinach quite nicely. Next time I'd probably add some spice to kick it up a bit (garam marsala probably or chili powder). Thanks for a healthy tasty dish Sue.
Great flavor!!! I used green lentils instead of red. Used olive oil instead of veg. oil. The lentils however were crunchy....definately need cooked thoroughly before stuffing the tomatoes. I will try making these again with adjustments. maybe baking them longer at a lower temp.
LOVE it! boyfriend liked it too. I cooked the lentils and rice in veggie broth added garlic in with the onions cumin garlic salt instead of salt red pepper flakes and feta cheese. awesome. I also cooked the lentils and rice for 15 minutes instead of 10 as others suggested - but some of the rice burned to the bottom of my pot. next time I'll use 1 and 1/4 cups veggie broth to avoid this.
Outstanding! We simmered lentils & rice in vegetarian broth rather than water. Had to cook the rice and lentils longer than 10 minutes. This is a do again and again and again!

I was not so pleased with this recipe. I go to this website for good accurate recipes...and this was neither of the two. The instructions were way off (the lentils and rice should be cooked separately as they require different cooking times). Also the recipe is pretty bland...no suggestions on spices? Wasn't impressed overall.
