Thank you, BrisVegas! :) I thought it was just me!! I'd love to make this recipe if it actually included lentils. Seeing as you commented over a year ago, the creator of the recipe isn't checking the site to see how his or her recipe is faring with viewers. Argh!!


Thanks for both of the comments. It should be 1 1/2 cups of lentils. Happy Cooking :)
