    Easy! A great vegetarian dish. Best if served fresh.

    Delicious recipe full of flavor and super easy, using a lot of pantry staples I already had in house. I substituted a can of chopped tomatoes for fresh since I didn't have any and it worked great. Also, I got called out of the house after having cooked the lentils. I stored them until the next day and then commenced with cooking the red onion and spices. The lentils came out perfectly warm, spiced and still had great texture. (I had worried they'd get mushy). It would be an easy dish to put the lentils cooking in the morning while getting ready for your day and then finish them for dinner that night, taking 15 min. tops. It has gone into our regular rotation (frequently paired with lamb chops).

    These are really good! I did not have all the spices on hand, so I used a couple of tsp of garam masala and added red pepper sauce. I also serve with a plate of pasta. Yum!
