I like making this as a side dish with cheeseburgers. This would also make a great one dish meal.

This has to be one of the cheapest dishes EVER. It is also quite healthy. It is very easy to put together. The taste was rather what I expected - lentils and rice, with some seasonings. I used brown rice, as suggested. If I make this again, I might consider putting some green peas in it to "liven it up" a little, although I'm not sure how they'd react to the long cooking time.
- 3⁄4 cup lentils
- 1⁄2 cup rice (I use brown rice)
- 1⁄2 teaspoon basil
- 1⁄4 teaspoon rosemary
- 1⁄4 teaspoon oregano
- 3⁄4 teaspoon garlic powder
- 3 cups chicken broth
- 1 cup cheddar cheese (optional)
