    This is one of my go to recipes. I love it! Make it with Trader Joe’s precooked lentils. Use garlic powder instead of cooking the garlic and extra olive oil for a dressing.
    Really delicious! I added more lemon and herbs because I’m a huge spice girl but it really is a stellar recipe. My Lebanese friends told me I did a lovely job too 👌👌

    It's quite delicious but I only used about 4 cloves of garlic instead of the 10-12 and it was plenty it's quite delicious but make sure to use fresh herbs and lemon juice to get a better flavor

    This was really amazing! I even messed up cooking my garlic and it added some really good crunch. I tried it cold and a little warm and both were good!

    Both bright and savory. Halved the cumin to allow the fresh flavors and lentils to come through. Did 2x parsley to mint. Was absolutely delicious on a cold spring afternoon.
