Such a simple and healthy dinner recipe that can even be served to you vegetarian and vegan friends. I like using fresh tomatoes but you could use tinned if needed.
Used different ingredients. This dish was very yummy! I added one zuccini, half a cup of chopped coriander and red chilli chopped really fine. I also substituted the green capsicum for yellow. I' too lazy to bother peeling or taking out seeds from the tomatoes...really it will be ok to skip that step. Instead of salt I used garlic salt. This was really good! Thanks! - 29 Sep 2008
Used different ingredients. She likes it! She likes it! I used stock cubes in the water when cooking the lentils and added 2 minced cloves of garlic when sauteing the onion and pepper. I also used 2 cans of tomatos with green chillis (drained) instead of the fresh tomatoes and a healthy dash of cumin when it all was simmering at the end. Tasty, healthy and filling. Thanks for a keeper! - 29 Sep 2008
Altered ingredient amounts. Excellent! I chopped four garlic cloves, half an onion, one red capsicum and a can of diced, stewed tomatoes (drained) as the base, sauteed those, then added 1.5 cups of lentils, 2 cups of chicken stock, 1 cup of water and simmered for about an hour, and these lentils came out fantastic! I added salt and a dash of cumin after they were cooked, and they made a meal all by themselves. Great recipe...thanks for posting. - 29 Sep 2008
