Hi. I found small amount of lentils and wild rice in the cabinet while looking for a grain to go with my sauteed summer squash tomatoes. Can the lentils and rice be cooked together or are their needs incompatible?
Roasted acorn squash is a hearty, relatively low-effort meal that's easily adapted to whatever ingredients you prefer (or happen to have on hand). The wild rice stuffing here is enhanced with sauteed onions, shallots, and celery, plus dried cranberries and toasted pecans for crunch. Replace the butter with vegetable oil and it's also vegan! Or go meaty and add crumbled sausage to the mix. Get the recipe.
This easy lentil soup is healthy, filling, and delicious. It happens to be vegetarian, too, and is packed not only with tender yet toothsome lentils, but carrot, celery, onion, spinach, and tomato. A little bay leaf, fresh thyme, and a splash of red wine or sherry vinegar perks everything up. Perfect with a loaf of good, crusty bread! Read more.
Simple flavors and a rustic touch will make this soup an instant home-cooked favorite, especially on chilly, wintry days. Inexpensive dried lentils make up the bulk of the soup, helping fill in your fiber gaps and keep you full longer.
