    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.

    1. 1
      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.
    2. 2
      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.
