The toasty flavor of caramelized celery pairs well with earthy lentils and an unusual finishing touch of dill, maple, and cider vinegar.

The flavors in this are very interesting and tasty if you like lentils. This is a keeper for us. We did not find the flavor sweet at all, perhaps it was because we used a good quality maple syrup. We definitely had to adjust the vinegar, salt and pepper at the end. Yummy.
Let me start by saying I have made numerous very delicious recipes from this site. However, this one was absolute rubbish. Literally. Went straight into compost. Would give zero stars if I could. Blech!
I liked the caramelized celery with the lentils, but I should have either eliminated or halved the maple syrup, as i don't like sweet in my savory. Next time i will do that. Also I cooked the lentils in stock, vegetable stock this time.
This recipe is one where the flavor gets better with time. I used the leftovers the next day in a salad. Also I didn't have dill on hand so I used fresh tarragon; a good dill substitute. Whole family enjoyed it.
