My kids love these non-traditional burritos. I love the complimentary protein. And it is so easy!

This is a recipe I grew up with (I'm the son of the submitter), and I've tried this recipe out on my wife and children, and they all love it! I however substitute jasmine rice (white) for the brown rice in the recipe. To account for this, I lower the oven temperature to 250? and check on it every so often, it seems to take about 1.5 hours to cook the rice and the lentils. I cook in a cast-iron dutch oven, which means it can keep warm in the oven for several additional hours as long as you turn the oven off!
