I made this recipe without looking at the reviews first. I was very surprised to come home and find all the water had been absorbed! I believe this recipe has a misprint; the dry lentils and rice should only be 1 cup each or maybe even 1/2 cup each.
I used 2c lentil and only 1c rice, and there was no liquid left after 7 hours of cooking. I salvaged the soup by transferring it to a stock pot, added ~6 cups of chicken stock that I had been thawing anyway, plus more water til it was a soup consistency. I simmered it on the stove for another half hour to soften the lentils that didn't cook through, added a little Polish Sausage and it was pretty good soup, but I've got a gallon of it now! I actually will try this soup again, using a half cup each of lentils and brown rice.
