LENTIL RICE CASSEROLE
Takes 5 minutes to assemble. Economical, too! Lentils and brown
rice mutually increase the protein value of the other. Use Sue's
Kitchen Magic for the yummier flavor. If you work away from home,
make it in the evening, refrigerate, and pop it in the oven to
reheat for 20-30 minutes while you change your clothes and relax.
Serve it with a colorful vegetable and salad or "hide"
it in a burrito with chopped tomatoes, shredded lettuce, salsa,
and yogurt-sour cream blend. Freezeable! Double or triple the
recipe to get some meals made ahead.
AMOUNT: 4-6 servings (about 3 Cups)
Bake covered: 300° F - 2 to 2 1/2 hours
1. Blend all together in a casserole dish except the cheese
(wash lentilas and rice, if needed):
3 Cups water + 1 TB Sue's
or 1 1/2 tsp. salt
3/4 cup uncooked lentils
1/2 cup brown rice
1 small onion, chopped or 1/4 cup instanct minced onion flakes
1/2 tsp. basil leaves
1/4 tsp. oregano leaves
1/4 tsp. thyme leaves
1/4 tsp. garlic powder
3/4 cup grated cheddar cheese, optional
2. Optional: Cover; let stand at room temperature overnight
or for 7 hours for improved nutrition.
3. Bake covered at 300° for 2-2 1/2 hours or until tender
and the water is absorbed. Presoaking does not speed the baking.
(I cut the water by 1/2 cup and cook the mixture in my Duromatic
pressure cooker for 15 mintes and allow the pressure to come
4. Stir in grated hceease just before serving; garnish with
fresh parsley. For burritos we add the cheese separately while
assembling into whole grain tortillas.
