coincidently, my friend erin emailed me the other day from the bay area, sharing a WONDERFUL recipe she tweaked from Gourmet magazine. it's too good, easy, cheap and healthy to keep to ourselves. it also has lentils which i love....so here it is:
Rice and Lentil Spinach Salad with Oranges and Dried Cherries
yield: Makes 6 servings
active time: 20 min
total time: 35 min
put one package of rice (three come in a box) in a pan and heat over medium heat until totally defrosted. you can also put a package in the refrigerator earlier in the day to defrost and skip this step.
when the lentils come out of the packaging, they need some breaking up. do this in a large bowl. add rice.
