Rice and lentil cake

Submitted by: MEGABOMB

Introduction

Something between a quiche and a risotto, this cake tastes great warm from the oven or cool the next day for a light lunch. It's a take on the classic Italian dish of risotto cake with added lentils for extra protein and substituting brown rice for extra fiber.

Number of Servings: 4

Ingredients

    1/2 cup sliced, cleaned leeks
    1 Tbsp olive oil
    1/2 brown rice, uncooked
    1/2 cup brown or green lentils, uncooked
    1/4 cup wild rice
    2 cups broth
    1 egg
    1 cup swiss cheese, grated (or any mixture of white cheeses)
    2 Tbsp chives, chopped
    2 Tbsp parsley, chopped
    salt and pepper, to taste

Directions

Over medium heat, fry leeks in oil until just tender.

Add rice, lentils, wild rice, and broth then bring to a boil. Cover, reduce heat and simmer for 40 minutes. After 40 minutes, drain off any remaining liquid (there shouldn't be much left).

In a medium bowl, beat egg then mix in cheese, chives, parsley, and salt and pepper (start with a few dashes then increase the next time you make the recipe, if necessary). When rice mix is finished, mix thoroughly with the egg mixture then spread evenly in a sprayed 9" pie pan or a sprayed springform pan.

Bake in 375F oven for about 30 or 35 minutes, until edges are brown and middle is set. after cooling for 5-10 minutes, turn out onto a plate and cut into wedges.

Serves 4 or 6. For 6, enter 0.75 serving portion into Spark tracker. Spinach salad on the side makes this a complete meal.
