Brown Rice & Lentil Stew

Submitted by: ENJOY2DAY1

Introduction

Stew or stoup; hearty stew. Stew or stoup; hearty stew.
Number of Servings: 1

Ingredients

    3/4 cup uncooked brown rice
    1/2 cup dry lentils, rinsed
    1/2 cup each: chopped onions, sliced celery, sliced carrots
    1/4 cup snipped fresh parsley
    1 tsp. Italian seasoning
    1 clove garlic, minced
    1 bay leaf
    2-1/2 cups vegetable broth
    1 can (14-1/2 oz) diced tomatoes (consider using hot diced tomatoes)
    1 Tbsp. cider vinegar


Directions

Combine all ingredients and 2 cups of water in dutch oven or large saucepan, bring to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer, uncovered, stirring occasionally, for 55 minutes to 1 hour, or until rice is tender. Remove and discard bay leaf.

I combined all ingredients and used one can of V8 tomato juice plus water that was the equivalent of 2 cups water.

As this recipe simmers, uncovered it uses up all the juices in order to cook the brown rice which creates a stew instead of a soup.

This recipe was taken from a bag of Giant Eagle Brown Rice.

I choose to use 1/2 cup for breakfast with a soft boil egg on top and for lunch as a stew along with some rye crisp.

Also can add black beans, pinto beans, kidney beans but add either more veggie broth or more tomato juice and water.

Enjoy!
