Delicious!

I didn't have any saffron, and I hate cilantro, but the recipe came out great anyway! Other than that, I made it exactly according to the recipe. Served it over quinoa cooked with lots of garlic. The lime juice is a must!

Substituted squash with pumpkin... Absolutely AWESOME!

I can image that the squash version may be a little bland, and as I am not a fan of it myself I decided to use pumpkin instead. My goodness, it was Devine! Everyone went back for seconds and I will definitely be adding this recipe to the favourites list. I didn't use Saffron either, and I did add a bit of salt and garlic for extra flavour. One of the most wonderful things I have cooked... Yum!

Pumpkin instead of squash works a treat

Needs Modifications

I doubled the cumin and added hot sauce and black pepper to give this dish a little more kick.

I love squash, lentils, and chick peas.

Not good

Chick peas were hard .....butternut squash mushy. Perhaps that was the point, mushy crunchy soup. Had to throw it out after $15 worth of saffron ....all down the drain. Literally

Healty ingredients

You could try cooking it

You could try cooking it differently? Eg. chickpeas more, squash less...

Nice Vegetarian Dish

This is overall a pretty good dish, although it does not have as much flavor as I would like. In the future, I would probably double some of the spices to achieve a stronger flavor. Is good accompanied with Indian food.

hearty
