it didn\'t say how many servings this was for; what kind of lentils to use; and what size zucchini? I had a medium size one; once it was spiralized it made enough for one serving; did make the lentils and I used red. It wasn\'t spicy at all. Had to add Indian chili to perk it up and about 2-3 tablespoons of Nutritional yeast. It looked good in the photo but nothing to bring to a potluck.
