Spicy Rice, Bean and Lentil Casserole

Fibre packed, vegetarian nutritionally complete meal. I used a mix of yellow and green split peas, instead of green lentils, the kidney beans can be substituted with any other type beans also. Can be reheated in microwave, next day for lunch at work. from the local newspaper through The Canadian Press.

I made this for my work Christmas party. Being the only vegan, I needed to make sure there was something I could eat! I doubled the recipe, which doubles beautifully, and everyone loved it! Very simple to make and will now be one of my go to recipes!

This is very easy and very tasty. I subbed red lentils and white basmati rice as that was what I had on hand. I also used homemade salsa.I would definitely make this again. Thanks for the recipe
