Curry quinoa lentils and brown rice

September 30, 2009 at 9:46 am 3 comments


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.

    This sounds really good. I’m not familiar with quinoa. But I do love lentils and rice… and to add curry with it…A winner to me.
    Being a big garlic fan, I would probably add some too.

    5/27/14: I’m going to make this tonight…have all the ingredients on hand except the chili, which I’m going to leave out. Wish I had a rice cooker. Since there’s nearly 2 C of dry ingredients and most of them double or triple with cooking I’m assuming there will be about 6 C of cooked food. Maybe 8-9 servings? Since I have 5 hearty appetites to appease, I’d better double it! Looking forward to this!
