I had never heard of Fakes, but decided to try this recipe because I had some lentils and a bag of shredded carrots. I didn't actually follow the directions; I just threw all the ingredients in my slow cooker, minus the onions because I don't like them (30 minutes = 2 hours on high, or 4 hours on low). The thing I was confused about... didn't say how much vinegar or when to add it. I guessed & went with one tablespoon of balsamic in the pot before serving it.
As soup, I didn’t really think much of it (though as I said, I didn’t follow the directions, so perhaps that makes a difference). I would rate it a 5 for how easy it was, a 3 for how it tasted, so I’m going with 4. Plus, I can’t fault the recipe if I didn’t follow it.
But the next day, I used it to make stuffed bell peppers. I made some white rice, stuffed yellow bell peppers with the rice & the Fakes, and baked them in the oven at 350 for 25 minutes. They were really good. They were even better for lunch the day after that, when the broth had more time to soak into the rice.
