This baked lentil casserole has chicken stock, bay, mustard, ginger, soy sauce, onion and honey baked into the lentils to give it a sweet but savoury flavour.
Fanstatic!! Just loved this recipe. I was soo worried about all the water in this recipe. But when the product was done...it really looked like a thick coarse refried beans with a hint of sweetness...not so much either. I had never eated lentils like this before and only tried a could of times in a soup. So as I got done with the 1st step in cooking the lentils in the water and broth, I was surprised at what flavor it held on it's own with out having pepper added. having said that...I really liked them before I got started with the 2nd step. I will totally make this again and again. My whole family loved them but my son...but that was to be expected. Looking at this recipe the one thing I changed but it's because I didn't want a high sugar content to it, was change to a sugar free alternative to the honey. It was just delish! And to think lentils are soo high in protein amazed me. 1/4 cup of cooked lentils yields 10 grams of protein!! This makes me very happy. Do try this recipe. it was really really great. - 11 Oct 2011 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
DELICIOUS!!! My first time making a meal with lentils. The only ingredient I didn't have was ground ginger. I used a dash of ground cloves instead and it turned out so good. I served the lentils over brown rice with a side of fried cabbage. I will definitely be making this again. - 16 Aug 2011 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
