"This is a fantastic recipe even for non-lentil eaters. The honey gives it a sweet taste and it is perfect served with rice. It's great as a main dish but could be a side as well. This is the first of many wonderful lentil recipes i tried. I was scared of lentils but my daughter wouldn't eat meat so i had to try other things...needless to say lentils are a part of our regular diet and that is because of this great recipe." — sassymom

Fanstatic!! Just loved this recipe. I was soo worried about all the water in this recipe. But when the product was done...it really looked like a thick coarse refried beans with a hint of sweetness...not so much either. I had never eated lentils like this before and only tried a could of times in a soup. So as I got done with the 1st step in cooking the lentils in the water and broth, I was surprised at what flavor it held on it's own with out having pepper added. having said that...I really liked them before I got started with the 2nd step. I will totally make this again and again. My whole family loved them but my son...but that was to be expected. Looking at this recipe the one thing I changed but it's because I didn't want a high sugar content to it, was change to a sugar free alternative to the honey. It was just delish! And to think lentils are soo high in protein amazed me. 1/4 cup of cooked lentils yields 10 grams of protein!! This makes me very happy. Do try this recipe. it was really really great.
These were ok. Try the baked lentils with cheese from this site!
DELICIOUS!!! My first time making a meal with lentils. The only ingredient I didn't have was ground ginger. I used a dash of ground cloves instead and it turned out so good. I served the lentils over brown rice with a side of fried cabbage. I will definitely be making this again.
Awesome! I've been looking for recipes that my toddler would like, and this is one of them! Very good for the whole family!
These lentils are awesome. Even my husband loved them and he is not a lentil fan. The only change I made was to decrease the salt from 2 teaspoons to a 1/4 teaspoon. I try to cook low-sodium and after adding chicken broth and soy sauce, I figured I needed to reduce the salt. They were still delicious and anyone who wants more salt could just add some to their portion. Thanks for a great recipe sassymom!
These were great! I didn't use all of the honey, and I'm glad I didn't it would've been way too much. They had great flavor and made enough for a weeks worth of lunches!
Not Bad! I added a cup of tomato sauce instead of water before I put it in the oven and it ended up tasting like baked beans.
Wow, these are so delicious!
