Excellent! I used a quart of vegetable stock instead of two (2) cupsand reduced the amount of water accordingly. Also, I could not find green lentils so used regular lentils in their place. I had wanted to take a picture but was taking it to our local college campus for a small brunch. It was gone before I was able to do so. (I brought containers with me so the students could take some home for later.) I got a fresh loaf of Italian bread from a local bakery to serve with it. I think I will add a little curry powder the next time I make it. Read More

Has a nice fall flavor. I cooked it for 2-1/2 hours on high. The vegetables held their shapes but were a little softer than what I like. Next time check it at two hours. Read More
