The humble look of this stew belies its complex flavor: a mix of spicy heat and earthy legumes, topped with a cooling, creamy lemon-flecked yogurt.

This is a staple in our home! I make it all the time. I love how quickly it comes together and how all the ingredients are from the pantry. It always turns out flavorful and satisfying!
I thought this was delicious, particularly given the simple ingredients, ease of preparation and short cooking time. The lemon yogurt sauce and chive garnish put it over the top. Will definitely make again.
Hugely disappointing. I should have read the reviews first. Red lentils and chickpeas together in a dish is unusual but I wanted to try it out anyway. The spicing is simplistic and does not have the rich characteristics I expect in a spicy vegetarian stew. The photo in the recipe is deceptive as my creation looks like mush.
This was OK. I like spicy food but the addition of 1/2 tsp of red pepper flakes seemed like a bit too much. I used 1/4 tsp instead and the heat came through just fine. Honestly, this is so bland looking. The addition of parsley or chives along with the yogurt helps with visual appeal but I also added sliced/diced carrots to the onions in the early prep step.
