STOP.....I know what you're thinking! My kids will never eat this......but I promise you they will! I am not a lentil lover (never have been) and tried this recipe because my husband has never met a lentil he didn't love. You're looking at a convert! My kids couldn't get enough and the only mistake I made was not doubling the recipe! The lemon and cilantro add a brightness, the spices enhance the earthiness and the lentils are pureed into creamy goodness.
