Curry quinoa lentils and brown rice

quinoalentilbrownrice

It’s the end of the month and I’ll push this one over the finish line. I like to get at least one post per month. This is healthy whole grains, high in protein, tasty, and way easy. And everyone should have a rice cooker.

Curry quinoa lentils and brown rice pilaf(?)

  • 2/3 cup quinoa
  • 2/3 cup brown rice
  • 1/3 cup lentils (any type that is whole with skin)
  • 1 tbsp curry powder
  • 1 bay leaf
  • 1 dried chili
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 2 1/2 cup water

Wash and strain the grains, if you aren’t washing it then you’ll need more water (1/2 cup), but quinoa requires washing. Put everything in a rice cooker, and let it cook on regular.

If using the stove top, put everything into a small heavy bottom and bring to a boil with the lid on, then turn it down to a low simmer and cook covered for 35-40mins. Remove bay leaf and chili, give it a mix in the pot before serving.

You can use vegetable or chicken stock if you like, just watch the salt. This goes great with almost anything.
