  1. I'm partially Arabian and find this dish to be very comforting. The video presentation is beyond professional! Those plastic containers you keep all of your spices in! I need those! I have a small eat in kitchen to work with. So it should be a fun challenge organizing spices, herbs, self canned goods, and fermentations. You just got me excited about this dish and I can't wait to cook it in my kitchen. Oh, btw I subscribed and I'm following 🙂

  2. Lay Ho, Wil. Wo hen hao!

    Lay Ho mah?

    I just wanted to tell you, after watching this lentil-rice video like 20 times, I finally made it.

    Absolutely everything you promised. Quick and easy and unbelievably delicious.

    I improvised a little bit because I like ginger. So I went heavy on the ginger. I also bumped the lemon flavor by adding 2 teaspoons of sumac.

    If you have never tried it, and you enjoy lemon flavor, you will love it.

    The aroma of this dish is wonderful and the flavor is amazing.

    Thanks for passing this one along.

    PS: just purchased all 3 of your cookbooks.

  3. At the beginning of Covid I started making your plant based ramen recipes. Few months later I turned vegan, which was the best decision of my life. Your videos played an integral role because the recipes are delicious and your way of making the videos is very calming. Thank you very mich Wil. Still a big fan of your videos. Best wishes from Germany

  4. Thank you for this recipe and video.
    Made a few changes: Used a "Autumn Blend" of lentils consisting of French Green Lentils, Red Lentils, Petite Gold Lentils, Beluga Lentils, Spanish Pardina, and Ivory Lentils.
    Also I'm one of those who do not like the taste of coriander, or cilantro for that matter, so I increased the amount of cumin and went with Hungarian smoked paprika for additional punch. Worked for me!
