Herbed Lentils and Rice

READY IN: 1hr 35mins
Recipe by Engrossed

From: "The Bean Cookbook" by Norma S. Upson. When I try it I will probably double the herbs. *Use vegetable broth to make this Vegetarian. You may try this with any kind of cheese you like.

This was wonderful and easy to make. I followed the recipe as written other then I used minced onions instead of a regular onion. I also used chicken broth. It was a great, different side dish for us. Everyone enjoyed it.
