I loved it, so did my daughter. I did change it just a little, I sauted the onions with fresh minced garlic and I substituted some of the water with an equal amount of chicken broth instead and took out the salt.
I found this recipe very good, as I like lentils very much. Also they are extremly healthy. There were a few simple changes I made to adjust this recipe to my taste. first off, I cut the salt in half, I prefer lower sodium. I also like a little more spice so I added 1/4 tsp curry powder. Lastly I added 1 chopped carrot, for added flavor,texture and color. I accompanied this dish with warm artisan sourdough bread.
I think this is a wonderful dish for a cold day to warm up your family and keep them healthy.
Pretty good. I'm of Armenian desent and my Mother made a similar dish but more of a soup. My non-Armenian wife loves it and it IS healthy and NO THERE IS NOT TO MUCH SALT!
This recipe just proves that the simplest of ingredients can produce wonderful results. Absolutely delicious! I didn’t know I liked lentils so much! I served this as a side dish to the “Lahmahjoon (Armenian Pizza)” recipe. I had some lamb bones left from that recipe, which I used to make a stock to substitute for the water in this recipe. I also added a little bit of cucumber and mint to the yogurt sauce, just because I had them on hand. It was delicious. The ingredients list calls for a lemon wedge, but the directions indicate lime. Either would be delicious, but we used lime. My kids gobbled this up and asked for more. I can’t wait to eat the leftovers for lunch tomorrow! Thank you so much for a recipe we will make over and over!
I had my doubts about this dish up until the final taste test before serving it, but the lemon and scallions really work wonders and complete the dish nicely. I added a carrot cooked with the onions and put some chicken bouillon cubes in the water instead of adding salt. And instead of plain yogurt, I whipped up a garlic-mint-cucumber yogurt sauce (like tzatziki)
Far too much salt was added to make acceptable. More fresh vegetable salads, next time! Thank you.
Just ok. This recipe is a good starting point, but it needs more flavor. I added chopped bell pepper and celery as well as cumin, but it was still missing something. I will probably play with it some more and figure out what spices it needs. On the plus side, the yogurt topping is a nice touch-adds a little extra tanginess.
Delicious! Will definitely be making this again. Thanks!
