Curry quinoa lentils and brown rice
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.
