I made this for a bunch of folks and all enjoyed immensely. We used zucchini, squash, carrots, and potaotes and this turned out very lovely & filling. One person has been fighting a cold and said this really helped. I served with garden salad & a nice loaf of crusty bread. Thanks for an easy filling meal!!

Good flavor. My DH really liked it, which surprised me because he doesn't care for sweet potatoes! I was afraid that it was going to be too spicy for me so I just added the chili powder a little at a time until I had the whole amount in. I was amazed that there was little to no heat at all. Thanks for a new recipe!

This is great! I am really digging it right now...especially with added dollops of plain yogurt. I went with a combo of sweet potato, orange bell pepper, celery, and carrot. Also used veggie stock. I think next time I will opt for fresh ginger since I prefer that taste to the powdered stuff. Really good, well-spiced recipe! Thanks so much :)

I adored this dish and the only change I made was to use fresh ginger rather than crushed. It's great with almost any vegetables that you enjoy and very good on a diet too.

This was great, I think I overestimated 5 c of raw veggies, but I added some extra water and bouillon and it turned out great. I used sweet potatoes, yams, carrots, and green beans. Even the picky kids liked it.

I wasn't expecting much. I've tried a lot of highly-rated recipes lately that were pretty disappointing. So the fact that this one was so enjoyable was a happy surprise. I used a potato, sweet potato, parsnips, carrots and green beans. Instead of red lentils I used green, because I had an open package I wanted to use up. I used ginger paste for the ginger. And I used homemade vegetable broth instead of the bouillon. I did add some salt. Very very tasty and easy recipe.

What a lovely easy dish to make. I used low fat cooking spray rather than the oil so it would fit in with my eating plan. I had never had lentils in anything other than soup and will certainly make this dish again. Like most things it tasted even better the second day, especially when served with a dollop of very low fat fromage frais and chopped fresh corriander. Delicious.

What a great, healthy, versatile recipe!! I used pumpkin, carrots, green beans, zucchini and swede. I meant to use sweet potato and red pepper, but I ran out of room. :D I'll save that for next time. Thanks Shaz!!

What a great, healthy and versatile recipe. It's so simple to make, with ingredients I usually have on hand and it's so flavoursome. I used potatoes, butternut squash, zucchini, green beans and some carrot. I halved the recipe without problems. Thanks for sharing, I'll definitely be making this again.
