Brown Rice Split Pea-Laf

Recipe by VegSocialWorker

From PETA's The Compassionate Cook. Simple, cheap and yummy. Can be a side or main with a pile o' veggies. I personally subbed the oil with some oil spray to cut down on fat and calories.

This recipe is ok, but 1 teaspoon of cinnamon was WAY too much. Maybe a quarter of a teaspoon at most. Same goes for the cumin. I doused it in teriyaki sauce so I could eat it.
