    I thought this was totally yummy. I put in two cloves of garlic, too. Also I was confused about the amounts (19 oz cans?) - I used the 15oz cans for the beans. For the lentils I used a small can of condensed lentil soup. That pretty much took care of the spices, and both the salt and the oregano werent neccessary. It was thicker than I wanted and still tasted mostly like the canned tomatoes, so I added chicken broth until I liked the consistency and the taste. Then I added a couple spoonfuls of tomato paste just because it seemed like a good idea. Made a giant pot and is seriously really tasty. Cant wait to try it again after a day.  -  16 Sep 2007  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    Delicious and very easy! Makes a big pot, which I meant to freeze for later but I ended up eating it all within a couple of days. Will definitely make this one again.  -  07 Jun 2003  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    Well - I did make changes to it - like I drained the beans and rinsed them - and then I added about a liter of vegetable broth to make it more soupy less stew-ish... it was a very nice flavor - just giving it a 3 star b/c it's not like the best I've ever had. But it's decent enough and I may make it again b/c it uses up some of my canned/dried food storage. Thanks.  -  16 Mar 2007  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
