      This was so yummy and filling. I have just recently discovered lentils and they are such a delicious (and economic) way of fulfilling your need for beef. My kids ate a ton as well. The only thing I changed was use chicken broth instead of vegetable because it's what I had on hand. Thanks so much English!
