Lovely Brown Rice and Lentils

READY IN: 50mins
Recipe by SpunkyGenius

Not lovely to look at, but lovely to eat. What you get is sort of a lightly spiced lentil and al dente rice mush, which is nevertheless quite tasty. Made this up based on what I had on hand (which was not much), so feel free to add or modify. It would probably be nice wrapped in a tortilla for a bag lunch.

This was quite tasty... a nice inexpensive, healthy addition to our monthly rotation. DH also really liked it. Thank you!
