I found this recipe while looking for meatless dinner ideas. I wasn't sure how my kids and I would like it, but we like all the components, so I gave it a whirl. I used chicken broth instead of vegetable broth for the rice, because that's what I had on hand. I also used chicken broth for the rice so we wouldn't feel like we wanted to add extra salt later on. I did have to substitute peanut oil because I was out of sesame oil, so I made up for that by adding some toasted sesame seeds as a garnish. Overall, we really enjoyed this dish, although I did let the eggs cook a little too long and the yolks got dry. There was a lot of the rice and lentils left over, so I mixed them together took it to work for lunch the next day and added some yellow mustard to it. It was SO good that way! I'm sure I'll make this again soon. Thanks for a healthy, inexpensive meal!
I could see how some people may really like this... but our family just didn't like something about it. Its texture wasnt desireable to me and I didn't care for the dominant taste of the lentils either.
This is a pretty good meal! My family liked. I'd play with it a bit for a little more flavor, but I also omitted red pepper flakes and used chicken boullion. I'd like to add sauteed onion and garlic to this next time. It's very good as is though! :)
I think this is great. I was looking for a quick curry recipe where I didn't have to make the curry from scratch. It tastes great with chickpeas too.
I tried this recipe because I'm pregnant and I want to eat more lentils. My expectations were that it would be mediocre, but I ended up loving it! My husband, who thought he would hate it, ended up liking it. Its perfectly spicy, and a really great blend of flavors. I did end up cooking the lentils a little longer to make sure they were soft.
Delicious, nutritious, easy, and cheap- can't get better than that. The only change I made was I used vegetable broth for the water and left out the bouillon. Thanks for sharing!
I make this quite frequently - once every week or two. I leave out the vegetable bullion and don't feel that the dish suffers at all because of this omission. It's a quick, easy, supper solution that tastes really good.
I love eggs with rice, and I love lentils! I was looking for a curried lentil recipe and this one looks great. I see tomorrow's breakfast right here on this page! Added cheese will be a must for my family, too.
