Josee, where are you getting your spicy stewed lentil recipe from? That sounds super good and I think I might like to try it too.

For the Mennonite version of pierogies, go to: http://www.mennonitegirlscancook.blogspot.com. They're known as wareneki, and a fav with Brett's bro (I think there are 2 recipes on the site- look under the Mennonite section). We usually stuff ours with ground beef or apples/plums.

Hi Cindy, the dhal recipe is also from Gordon Ramsay's World Kitchen cookbook on p. 221. I got my copy from the library 🙂 I haven't tried it yet, if it's good I can post the recipe online or email it to you.

Thanks for the link Jo-Ann! Those wareneki look yummy 😀 Have you ever made sauerkraut?
