13 ingredients
6-8 servings
I came across this on the Food Network. I was on a quest to do something with a bag of lentils a neighbor gave me. I didn't know what they were and didn't know how to prepare them. I lightened up the orig. recipe that called for bacon slices and use bouillion instead of stock to fit my own needs. This is an excellent recipe. You must try these!
