Brown Rice and Lentil Pilaf

It is great when we reach a stage where we are actually craving healthy food!  I got home last night, and my menu for the day went out the door, because I really wanted lentils!

So I made this Brown Rice and Lentil Pilaf with a lovely Middle-Eastern flavour!

140g cooked brown rice
200g cooked lentils
– I usually cook rice and lentils in chicken or veggie stock

Then, fry in 10ml lemon infused olive oil:
1 onion, chopped
1 medium sized red pepper chopped

Mix it all together adding 1/4 teaspoon ground cumin, a pinch of cinnamon and a pinch of smoked paprika plus salt and pepper to taste.

Add 125 – 250ml chicken stock and simmer until liquid is reduced.

Serve with fresh coriander!  πŸ™‚

Serve 1 – a large portion!

This should work well as a salad if cooked down!

Tip: When I cook brown rice and lentils I always cook extra to be portioned and frozen for later!  A great time saver! πŸ™‚
