Mexican Brown Rice & Lentils

Mexican Brown Rice & Lentils created by Susiecat too

This is a tasty combination. I got this recipe from a friend. I use the French lentils as they do not break apart as much as red or yellow lentils.

    My family enjoyed this dish. I sauteed the onions and added fresh garlic and red pepper. I used vegtable broth and included the liquid from the crushed tomatoes as part of the 1 cup of water. I will make this again.

    Very easy, very tasty. To me this was a vegetarian version of chili, since I used veggie stock instead of the chicken stock. I guess that would actually make it vegan. I used a mixture of brown and red lentils, because I wanted it to be really thick. The rice kind of got lost in here, but I love lentils so that was the big draw for me anyway. I also added some smoked paprika at the end. Made for Potluck tag. Thanks, FloridaNative!

    This was a tasty and hearty meal. My DH and daughter both really liked it. I found it a little plain, but it's easy enough to adjust some of the seasonings to taste. As someone else mentioned. a can of chopped chilies would be a nice addition.

    I love this dish, it's simple to make and filling too. The second time I made it, I added a little more cayenne and I also added a can of chopped chilies to it. I took it to work and everone enjoyed it :)
