I made two substitutions since I was working from what was in the house, and it came out beautifully: I used split peas (with appropriate alterations to soaking/cooking) instead of lentils, and a can of tomato sauce instead of the tomato paste. Otherwise I followed as directed, and the results are fantastic!" - Errantdreams
