Number of Servings: 4


    1 t. olive oil
    2 shallots, minced
    1/4 cup basmati brown rice
    2 1/4 cup lentils, rinsed and drained
    1 10 oz pkg. frozen chopped spinach, thawed and squeezed dry
    1/2 cup dried cranberries
    1/4 t. salt
    1/4 t. ground pepper
    1/4 cup pine nuts


Heat the oil in a large nonstick saucepan, then add the shallots. Saute until softened, 3-4 minutes. Add the rice and saute, until the rice is lightly browned, about 3 minutes.

Add the broth and lentils; bring the mixture to a boil. Reduce the heat and simmer, covered, 30 minutes. Stir in the spinach, cranberries, salt, and pepper; simmer, covered, until the rice is tender, 10-15 minutes. Fluff the mixture with a fork and stir in the nuts.
