I made some changes to this recipe, but I loved the end result. I omitted the oil and butter. I used about 1 1/2 cups of onions and 3 minced garlic cloves. I used 1/2 lb. of lentils and 1/2 lb. of lean ground turkey, and I used diced tomatoes instead of crushed. I didn't adjust the spices at all, but it could have used a little more heat. I will make my version again. It was really yummy, and weight watchers- friendly, too.
This was okay, but it needed more flavor. My husband didn't like it at all.
amazing. I tried this recipe when I was trying some healthier alternatives for myself and now it is a regular on the houshold menu. Vegtarian and confirmed 'meat eaters' raved about it. My kids had seconds and I can serve it to my vegan friends. I put all the ingredients in a crock pot for at least 6 hours, adding a bit more cumin powder and carrots. A keeper!
I loved this recipe, but I don't like cooked carrots and my bf doesn't like celery so I substituted corn and small cubed potatos. This might sound weird, but it was really tasty and gave the chili a little more volume. It gave me a great excuse to cook my red lentils!
I would also say that (being born in Texas and having a deep love of spicy things) if you want a spicy dish you REALLY have to amp up the spice. I used about triple the chili powder and cayenne pepper and red pepper and black pepper than the recipe calls for. I tasted it after initially putting in my spices and couldn't taste anything but the tomato.
Still the base of the recipe was a great idea; I'll certainly be cooking it again.
Note: add a good crusty, warm french bread for a real homey/happy dish!
Great recipe!! I added double the chili powder and it spiced it up to perfection. My husband loved it so much he brought it to work for some co-workers. Everybody loved it!!
Taking "Beano" first is always a good idea with any kind of bean.:)
WOW!!!!!! Such incredible taste! I have never left a review before, but I just had to this time. This is a very tasty dish, I poured it over white rice, and it was excellent in every way and I'm not a lentils person!
This was very good. My husband and i loved it. We ate it with tortilla chips and cheddar cheese over the top. YUM
Yummy! I gave it four stars because like other reviews said, I did need to add spices and I also used the whole can of crushed tomatoes. I also added red and green bell peppers and a small can of corn (kept the carrots but skipped the celery) and I think the corn made it extra good. We ate it with the vegan agave corn muffin recipe on this site and it was an awesome dinner!
