Another scrumptious way to enjoy our favorite little lentil friends...
1 cup brown rice, uncooked
1 1/2 cups lentils, uncooked
6 cups chicken broth (or combination of chicken broth and water, depending on what you have on hand)
1 pound sausage
1 onion, thinly sliced
2 cloves minced garlic
Salt, pepper, cumin, and italian seasoning to taste
Place rice and lentils in a large casserole dish and cover with the broth/water.
Brown sausage in a pan, then add onion and cook until onion starts to brown. Add garlic and stir for just a minute. Add mixture to rice/lentils and stir.
Add seasonings to taste, and then place in 300 oven for 2 hours or until liquid is absorbed and everything is tender.
This one was a hit in our house! Enjoy!
