Submitted by: LISAM427

View the original recipe for Taco Style Lentils & Rice


Number of Servings: 4


    3/4 cup dry lentils
    3/4 cup dry brown rice
    4 cups water
    4 chicken or vegetable bouillon cubes
    2 teaspoons chili powder
    1/2 teaspoon cumin
    1 teaspoon onion powder
    1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
    1 Tbsp olive oil


In a 2-quart saucepan bring the water to a boil. As the water is heating, add the oil, lentils, rice, bouillon, chili powder, cumin, onion powder, and garlic powder. Bring the whole thing to a nice fat boil. Reduce the heat to low. Place a lid on the lentils and allow the mixture to simmer for about 45 to 50 minutes. The water should be mostly absorbed. You may serve this as is, or topped with a little cheddar cheese if desired.

* If you are having a busy day and don't have time to cook this on the stove, it can cook in the crock pot on low for about 6 to 8 hours or high for 3 hours instead.
