Decent, though a tad bland. It does make quite a lot, and is very filling. I doubled the red pepper and added a 1/2 tsp of dried oregano and 1 tsp dried basil. I think it added a little bit extra.
Great, easy, inexpensive recipe! I used regular brown rice and added it at the same time as the lentils. I just served it with some buttered rolls. Very filling.
We love this recipe, and I make it a few times every winter. Hearty and healthy, just like the name says. Great leftovers and to freeze too - I've kept it for up to a month. Serve with a crusty whole wheat loaf for a perfect weeknight meal.
