I found this simple, and extremely flavorful recipe on the Meatless Monday site. My husband said it was one his favorites!
The original recipe recommended green lentils, but I used french lentils instead. I prefer french lentils because they’re less likely to get mushy!
Be sure to soak your lentils and rice the night before making this dish. Not only does soaking them reduce their phytic acid content, making them easier to digest; it also helps them cook faster!
Cook your lentils and rice in homemade chicken broth for even more health benefits!
