Thank you very much for such a wonderful recipe! We love lentils and barley, and this is so good and hearty. Love the addition of cumin. I will make this today.rosemaryblue in CollegeTown loved it
I'm making this tomorrow! awesome post thanks so much. I'm going to be using Kale and diced prosciutto, and that's the only change I'm probably going to make.
