This was a delicious and easy dish. I happened to have a couple of pouches of lentils left over from our holiday in France so this was perfect! I will certAinly make this again but use dried lentils. I did add a little more cumin.

According to others in the house, the taste was a bit boring. Saying that the chef forgot to put cumin in the pan.

I'd probably substitute cumin for caraway seed and definitely add garlic.

Personally I liked it, as it was something different from what we normally have.

no lentil pouches here. 500g regular lentils ok or are they like instant porridge, pre-digested?

What, in the 21st century, is wrong with a microwave? They are very good at certain jobs, and speed things up for those of us with less time! The recipe is very nice by he way!

Why do we need to use microwave ingredients? Let's be 21st century and try to avoid the microwave! I know it takes longer - worth it.
