    Too much pepper and too much salt! Made this and it was ruined by the excess of pepper (I only put in 2tsp of salt). Surely the recipe should say 2 tsp not 2 tbsp.

    This recipes looks delicuious! We love lentils in our home. I grew up eating them, and so have my girls. I'll have to make this for my family. Of coarse my Grandmother's recipe that I've used for years is much simpler than yours, so I hope I can do yours justice!
    Thanks, Michael...
