A Tasty Vegan Recipe

Quilt for Kai
October 2010

Here's a very tasty main course for vegans.
Needless to say you do not have to be a vegan
or a vegetarian to enjoy this!! 

Brown Rice and Lentils
serves 4-6
3 1/2 cups low sodium veggie broth
1/2 cup water
3/4 cup lentils rinsed and picked over
3/4 cup brown rice
2 T olive oil
1T onion powder
( I use 1/4 cup finely chopped onion)
1/2 tsp garlic powder
(I use 2 finely chopped cloves of garlic)
1/4 tsp salt
Freshly ground pepper to taste
In a medium pot bring all ingredients to a boil
over high heat. Reduce heat to med-low to low,
cover and simmer until rice/lentils are tender.
Stirring occasionally about 45-60 minutes.

I first made this recipe for our Christmas dinner in 2010.
It has become one of our favorites.
I made the baby quilt for our good friend Tom's first grandchild.


  1. Everything sounds good except the lentils and I've just never cared for them. I'll be you could use another bean though. Yes, I'm sure you could.

    Have a terrific day. ☺

  2. I love lentils and am always looking for new ways to cook them. Thanks!

  3. Think I'll brew up a pot of this. I am a lover of one pot meals, especially these kinds. MMm.

  4. It's something the girls and i would enjoy. My husband cannot tolerate lentils, though. For him, i have to cook the south Louisiana staple of red beans and rice.

    It's one i will do for the rest of us, though.

  5. Love the quilt. The colors are so Bonnard!


I love comments and will attempt to reply to each one. However, lately I have been getting "Unknown" comments that are linked to some sort of web page. I will never open this sort of comment and will immediately mark as spam. I am not interested in opening something that could be detrimental to my blog security etc. Never have enjoyed hackers! Thanks!
