    This recipe is really tasty. I added a tad more heat because we like it hot. Will definitely make again.

    Wow this is fantastic! Like happy flavors dancing in my mouth. I used a Serrano pepper for heat and yum! Wish I had doubled or tripled it. Fantastic. Oh and I made my lentils in veggie broth for added depth.
