Lovely Brown Rice and Lentils

Total Time

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.

Cheap, easy, and good. This is a good lunch wrapped in a flour tortilla when I am in the mood for Indian takeout, but am low on cash. ;0)
