Modified Taco Style Lentils and Brown Rice

Submitted by: CALIDREAMER76

Introduction

I took a great spark recipe and modified it for my tastes adding some flavor and reducing the fat and calories. I took a great spark recipe and modified it for my tastes adding some flavor and reducing the fat and calories.
Number of Servings: 6

Ingredients

    3/4 cup dry lentils
    3/4 cup brown rice
    4 cups vegetable broth
    I Tablespoon each: Chili Powder, Cumin, Minced Onion, Garlic Powder
    1 Tablespoon Olive Oil
    1/2 Cup Salsa Verde (calculated using Xochitl brand)

Directions

Combine all the ingredients and place in the slow cooker for almost 3 hours on high. Stir occasionally. Nearly all the water should be absorbed - be careful not to cook it too long as it will be too dry and stick.
Makes 6 servings approx. 3/4 cup each.

Great as a side or I like to take a LaTortilla 100 Calorie Tortilla, warm it up, sprinkle a 1/4 cup shredded 2% cheddar or Mexican blend cheese over the tortilla and let it begin to melt. Add 3/4 cup of the Lentils and Rice on half the tortilla, fold in half. Cut for slices for a tasty and filling Quesadilla.
