Introduction

I initially got this recipe from the Tightwad Gazette but I changed it a bit. It's so easy and so versatile. I often add canned beans, other veggies or whatever I have on hand. The original recipe calls for 1 tsp Italian seasoning and 1/4 tsp garlic powder and 3/4 cup chopped onion in place of the chili powder and mushrooms.

Ingredients

    1/2 cup Lentils (I use brown)
    3/4 cup brown rice
    Chili powder (use as much or as little as you wish)
    1 can mushrooms
    3 cups water (you can also sub. broth or add a boullion cube if you want more flavor)
    shredded cheese, optional

Directions

I usually get three to four meals out of this but it could make a great side dish or be served with a salad to stretch out more servings.

In a 9x9 casserole dish combine all ingredients. Season as desired and stir. Cover with aluminum foil or cover. Cook at 350 for approx. 1 hour. Uncover & stir. Cook for another 20 minutes

You can add cheese after uncovering but I usually add a sprinkling when I serve or reheat to minimize how much cheese I eat.

    This was good AND easy. I think next time I will kick up the spice, though. Thanks! - 3/19/09
