My boyfriend and I are so pleased with how this turned out! I read the reviews first, then altered the recipe a bit to go in the crock pot. I put 1 1/2 cups lentils, 1/2 teaspoon black pepper, 2 teaspoons cumin (would have used more but I ran out), 3 teaspoons coriander, 4 chicken bouillon cubes, and all in all 6 1/2 cups of water in my crock pot. Cooked it on high for 3 1/2 hours, then stirred in 1 1/2 cups long grain rice. Then I let it cook on high for another hour. The rice really did suck up all that water, too! I had to keep adding more and kept track. I turned the crock pot to warm while I fried the onions, using about 2 tablespoons of olive oil and 2 good sized onions. We ate it with fat free sour cream. All in all, a very tasty meal that I will make many more times. I think it would be pretty bland without the spices though. My crock pot method made a large amount too, enough for about 8 servings, and since it's just the two of us I plan to use the lentils and rice as taco filling a couple nights to change things up.
