With no added fat, this is a very simple one-pot side dish starter
recipe. Personalize it with some chopped greens, browned seitan, or a
1 1/2 cups uncooked white or brown rice
1 cup lentils
2 tomatoes, diced
3 1/2 cups water or Vegetable Broth
1 bay leaf (optional)
1 tablespoon curry powder
1/2 teaspoon cumin
1/2 teaspoon turmeric
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder Salt and pepper, to taste (optional)
1. Combine all ingredients except salt and pepper in a large soup pot or
stockpot. Bring to a slow simmer, then cover, and cook for 20 minutes,
stirring occasionally, until rice is done and liquid is absorbed.
2. Taste, then add a bit of salt and pepper if needed. If used, remove bay
leaf before serving.
