    threeovens's Note:

    A quick and nutritious side dish that goes especially well with grilled food. The cooking time is cut down by using a quick-cooking brown rice, but do not use "instant" rice without adjusting the cooking time at the end.

      Heat oil in a heavy-bottomed pot over medium heat. Add carrots, onions, red pepper and 1/4 teaspoon salt. Saute, stirring occasionally until vegetables have softened, about 8 minutes. Lower heat, if necessary, to prevent onions from browning.

      Add chicken broth and increase heat until boiling. Add lentils and cook 10 minutes, stirring occasionally. Add orzo and pepper to taste. Add another 1/4 teaspoon salt if necessary.
    3. 3
      Stir in brown rice, reduce heat to medium low and cook, covered, 10 more minutes until all the liquid is absorbed and rice is tender.
    4. 4
      Fluff with fork and serve.

      We enjoyed this dish at a friend's dinner party. She added chopped walnuts to the recipe. It's delicious and low calorie too! I can't wait to make it.

      This was good. I would like a little more flavor so next time I would add some garlic and some spices. That said, this was easy and even the people who said "that doesn't sound good" ended up liking it. We ate it as a side with grilled hamburgers. Thanks.
