    My first recipe attempt from this website! As someone who hates cooking, this was fairly painless and taste good. I added some fresh parsley and had it with some ciabatta bread slices. I look forward to the leftovers.

    I made this in the slow cooker today, about 2 hours on high was perfect and that was using dried lentils. Delicious winter dish!
