This is so good. No added fat with a healthy serving of Protein and Carbohydrates. The taste is just sooo delicious; with spice. You have just got to try this recipe!!! I used vegetable stock instead of chicken stock. I am not a keen lover of Vagen food, BUT WOW. My son, who is such a difficult person to please if the meal does not have meat served with it, just raved about this dish. Congratulations Tebo, you have a winner here. Your recipe will be a regular on our monthly family menu. By the way, this was so easy to prepare. Assembled in a matter of minutes. A good recipe to use when you walk in the door from work etc.; prepare the Baked Rice and Lentils, pop it in the oven, bathe and relax, then eat. Serve with steamed vegetables or salad.

Lentils and Rice two of my favourite foods and absolutely delicious, nice subtle flavours. Incredibly easy and a feel good, comfort food. Cooked this tonight with Tebo's recipe for Vietnamese Cabbage. Great combination. Baked Lentils and Rice will be a staple in our menu. Great recipe!

This was nice but it came out a little dry. Next time I will add more water.

Delicious and so easy to prepare! Will definitely prepare it again as EVERYONE in my family loved it and thats a hard thing to do! I'm from the South, so I prepared it with Baked "Fried" Chicken and creamed corn. Soooo yummy! Thanks!

Very easy and delicious. I also served it with steamed veggies. Next time I might spice it up a bit more.

I made this over the weekend for my lunches this week. It was really good. I just added some steamed veggies and it was perfect. I didn't have tumeric so I just left it out and it turned out great.

This dish was ridiculous good! My husband normally doesn't like ethnic food, but he couldn't keep his fork out of the pan! I grilled some Moroccan style chicken and made a simple salad with Feta...it was a huge hit with my guests! Thank you

I really enjoyed this...if you like the texture and taste of lentils then you will enjoy this one too! I decreased the amounts of rice and lentils but kept the spice measurements the same and the flavor was nice. I also cooked this completely on the stove by letting the lentils get a 15 min. head start simmering and adding the rice later. Mixed the leftovers with some chopped parsley and minced red peppers, stuffed them into red peppers and baked for 20 minutes for a quick lunch! Thanks for posting!

Very easy to make, very economical. Used yellow lentils and the dish was a lovely golden color.
