I have never made this recipe. Though it does sound delicious. Have you made something similar? Do you have a better recipe. Lay it on me. I want to know and share with others.

I am currently working on a lentil recipe with ground turkey in it. If it works good then I may start working on a particle healthy easy cook book for busy families. Any one know of a good publishing company.
