Lentil Rice Casserole

This recipe is one of the easiest I have ever made!  You can throw this one together in minutes and then pop it in the oven and in a few hours you will have a cheap, healthy, and tasty main dish.  :-)

Lentil Rice Casserole
3 cups water
3/4 cup uncooked lentils
1/2 cup uncooked brown rice
3/4 cup onion, chopped
1/2 tsp. basil
1/4 tsp. oregano
1/4 tsp. thyme
1/4 tsp. garlic powder
1/2 cup cheddar cheese, shredded

Preheat oven to 300 degrees.

Combine all of the ingredients (except for the cheese) in a casserole dish, and stir until mixed.

Bake, covered for 2-2 1/2 hours.*

*During the last 20 minutes top with the cheese.

**We also sometimes like to sprinkle our casserole with a little Bragg Liquid Aminos for some extra flavor.


That's it!  I told you it was super simple! 

This recipe is modified from one of the Sue Gregg cookbooks.
