Frozen vegetables don't work well in this recipe because they tend to add a significant amount of water to the dish, causing it to be somewhat runny.

Savvy Veg felt that 8 servings is really more like it. That would bring down the calorie count, and using unsalted tomatoes and vegetable broth would reduce the sodium.

Soaking the lentils for a few hours in hot water before cooking will make for shorter cooking and softer lentils.
