    •3/4 c dry lentils
    •3/4 c quinoa
    •4 c water
    •4 beef bouillon cubes (veg version)
    •1T chili powder
    •1 t cumin
    •1 t onion powder
    •1/4 t garlic powder
    •1c corn
    •1c green beans
    •1c salsa
    •1c shreddedf cheddar cheese


In a 2-quart saucepan bring the water to a boil. As the water is heating, add the lentils, quinoa, bouillon, chili powder, cumin, onion powder, and garlic powder. Bring the whole thing to a 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.

Now prepare a 13x9 baking dish with cooking spray. Pour in the vegetables; add the lentil mixture top with salsa and place in a pre-heated 350 degree oven for 30 minutes. Add cheese and place back in oven until cheese is melted. I spray a bit of cooking spray on top of the cheese to help it melt a bit better.

Serve with a dollop of sour cream if desired(not included in NI).
