Brown Rice and Lentils

READY IN: 55mins
Recipe by Marlowe Earl

I found this recipe ages ago as a base for a vegetable stew. I have yet to get to the stew part. These two ingredients make a complete protein and I find it very satisfying. For breakfast, I love it heated with a bit of Splenda Brown Sugar, cinnamon, a dash of cayenne and a touch of butter.

Extremely simple recipe, and a good base, but lacking in spices. I added more salt plus cayenne pepper and that helped out a lot. Next time I'll substitute half the water for vegetable broth, and I think that will make it a 4 star recipe.
