    I'm in love with this dish! So fragrant and tasty. Great as a side or as a full vegetarian meal. I doubled the recipe and added slightly more peas and lentils to the brown rice ratio. I used homemade chicken stock and whole spices where I could such as cinnamon and coriander. Once cooked, I added chia seeds (because I try to get the wonderful benefits of chia into everything). This tastes somewhat like a lovely, spicy (but not "hot") beryani. I would imagine you could add chicken if you wanted to make a chicken beryani-like full meal. Thank you so much, Barb, for this recipe - a new, healthy addition to my definite keepers! :)
