Great meal. I have never used canned lentils before, but they are really a time saver and if rinsed properly, taste almost as good as the dried. This recipe comes together very quickly and is something that I will repeat. I finished the dish with parsley as I had it in the garden. "Very French".

This recipe is full of flavor. Prepared fresh lentils and used shallots as I did not have an onion. It is a lovely meal in relatively little time, tastes great and the cilantro is the perfect finishing touch.

What happened to the PRINT recipe option? I'm not seeing it anymore.

Very good and so simple!!! If the lentils are made ahead, super quick. Even when I cook the lentils as I prepare other items, dinner is on the table in a short amount of time, and really delicious and elegant.
