Easy to make but needs more flavor, perhaps another ingredient with something of a bite. The combination of soft lentils and rice also necessitate the addition of some crisper ingredients. However we were looking for a high fiber meal to avoid taking supplements and it certainly fit the bill. Next time I'll saute the carrots less, add celery, and perhaps some curry.
