  1. Lentils are also commonly used in Ethiopia in a stew-like dish called kik, or kik wot, one of the dishes people eat with Ethiopia’s national food, injera flat bread. Yellow lentils are used to make a nonspicy stew, which is one of the first solid foods Ethiopian women feed their babies.^,”-

  2. What a wonderful recipe – and especially for my first attempt at including Lentils into a meal. I actually let my dish cook for a good 3 hours on the stove top at a very low heat, and any liquid was absorbed which I thought added to the recipe. Plus it improves with age.Looking forward to finishing the leftovers on Day 2.
