I used brown lentils instead of green, it still held up well. Also, subbed water for the wine but add a vegan Not Chikn bouillon for spices. Also used Tofurky kielbasa as the sausage. It turned out great! Cooking times were spot on with the exception of the onion. You can't brown an entire onion in 4 minutes. Make sure you use a LARGE skillet.
