Who said pilaf had to be only rice! It's twice as filling with lentils and makes a hearty side dish.
Ingredients:
Nonstick cooking spray
1 cup chopped onion
1 cup chopped celery
1 cup chopped green bell pepper
1 cup fresh mushrooms, sliced
1 cup water
1 1/2 cup lentils, uncooked
1/2 tsp garlic powder
16 oz can low sodium chicken broth
2/3 cup brown rice, uncooked
Directions:
1 Coat a large saucepan with cooking spray. Place over medium heat and add onion, celery, and pepper, and mushrooms, sautéing until tender.
2 Add water, lentils, garlic powder, and chicken broth bringing to a boil. Cover and reduce heat to simmering for 20 minutes.
3 Add rice and lentils; simmer until rice is done and lentils are tender.
4 ENJOY!
