As a vegetarian, I really think your lentile recipe sounds good and plan to make it. Anymore like this with no meat?
Side note: So glad you're an animal lover too. People ask me why I'm a vegetarian and I've learned to keep it short and sweet, "Because I like to be able to thank them." One person asked me, "You talk to animals?" "Yes." I've done this before Chakotay, but think what that was like to hear the character say, "We talk to animals." That character is also a vegetarian. Glad to see Star Trek have an admitted vegetarian character, who also loves animals so much he talks to them too. lol
