DIRECTIONS

  • In a 3-quart saucepan, cook onion in oil till crisp-tender, about 5 to 10 minutes.
  • Add broth, rice, lentils, potato, carrot, raisins, and seasonings.
  • Cook until rice and lentils are almost tender, about 10 to 15 minutes.
  • Stir in the bell pepper and peas.
  • Cover and cook about 5-10 minutes more, or until the liquid is absorbed and the rice and lentils are tender.
  • Let stand 5 minutes before serving.
  • I sometimes use this rice to make stuffed peppers.
  • I put rice in peppers and pour canned spaghetti sauce (I usually add about 1/8 cup water to this) over, cover and bake about 45 to 60 minutes.
  • I also use leftover rice to make veggie burgers.
  • Enjoy!
  • For Vegetarian/Vegan do not use chicken broth.
