I have tried lentils many different ways, and I have had to decide I just dont like them. Could you substitute rice or beans in this recipe?

Juliana, I don't think rice would work as well. You could try a different kind of bean if you like. White beans might be nice.

silly question, but do i have to soak lentils prior to cooking them? also, does it matter what kind of lentils? i had no idea there were so many kinds... i'm so confused! this looks delicious, can't wait to try it!

Katy, you do NOT need to soak lentils but you can. If you do the cooking time is shorter. I prefer French lentils for this recipes (hence the name). They are small and dark gray. Red lentils would not work at all. Green lentils would be okay.

Yummy! I made this for lunch today and it was delicious, we love lentil salads and this one is really nice now that weather is getting cold and you feel like a warm salad. I think next time I will add some apple together with the raisins and scallions. BTW, this website is great, I love the videos, the recipes are really healthy and well explained and I think it's great that you give ideas for people to go more organic!

I have heard that taking sage as an herbal supplement will dry up milk supply in breastfeeding moms. Do you know if eating it in a dish like this would have the same effect?

Hi Chrissy, Yes, sage extract is used to help reduce breast milk flow. However, the essential oils need to be concentrated and the dosage regular (several times over several days) for it to have a strong affect. I don't think that eating this dish once every so often would disrupt milk production. If it is a concern, skip the sage and use another strong herb such as rosemary.
