Number of Servings: 8


    1 cup dry Lentils
    2 medium onions, diced
    2 large carrots, sliced
    1 cups fat free Chicken or Vegatable Broth
    2 cups water
    1/2 T Curry Powder
    1/2 T Cumin
    Salt and Pepper to taste
    3 cups zucchini, sliced
    2 cups cooked and cooled brown rice
    1 cup Salsa or 2-3 Roma Tomatos, seeded and diced
    1/2 cup Cilantro, chopped


Add lentils, onion, carrots, 1 cup broth and 2 cups water to large pot. Bring to boil, reduce heat and simmer for 25-30 minutes, until tender but not mushy. Remove from heat, pour off extra liquid and add Zucchini and Curry Powder and Cumin.

Combine lentil mixture and brown rice in one bowl. Add salsa or tomatos and cilantro. Mix well. Add salt and Pepper to taste. Spread mixture on large baking sheet to cool. This will keep the dish from clumping. Serve cold.
