This would get 5 stars except for, as others pointed out, way too much pepper. I just put a small sprinkle on top and that is plenty. Also I don't add salt (only at the end if needed), may be needed if you use homemade sodium-free broth, but I use store bought and even with very low sodium broth (6% per cup), it is plenty salty for my taste. Also I prefer the taste of red lentils. With my 6 qt. crock pot I can fit more veggies so I add whatever I have around (carrots, celery, peppers, etc.) can fill it almost to the top although it does expand very slightly as the lentils/barley cook. This is the perfect recipe for a winter day when sick since it's so so easy to make, and can use up extra veggies lying around.
