If you use french lentils, they'll hold their shape better than others. If you don't have any in your spice cabinet, (and I don't- have never used it), I would sub the savory for whatever favorite herb you have.. thyme would probably be my first choice.

Made these tonite.DELICIOUS! I used french lentils, replaced the savory with fresh thyme(because it's what I had)and used fire-roasted tomatoes.It is SO good. It's going to bunco with me tonite on some brown rice for all my gluten-free friends. Thank you, again, for the recipe, LoriAnn!
