Why I Love This Recipe

So easy to put together, from one of Richard Simmons Deal-A-Meal cookbooks, but I changed it a little to suit my taste.

Ingredients You'll Need

2 teaspoons olive oil
1 clove garlic
1/2 cup shallots, chopped
3/4 cup brown rice, uncooked
1/2 cup lentils, uncooked
2 cups water
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 cup chives, chopped
pepper to taste
4 cups steamed vegetables, such as broccoli, carrot sticks, green beans and sliced leeks


In a large heavy saucepan heat olive oil and saute garlic and shallots. Do not allow to brown.

Add rice and lentils. Saute 3 minutes.

Add water and salt.

Bring to boil. Cover and reduce heat.

Simmer over low heat 40 minutes. (maybe a little less)

Remove from heat and let sit 15 minutes without removing lid.

Stir in chives.

Season to taste with pepper.
