We've got an easy vegan lentils and rice recipe for you! Make your own with a Planet Rice giveaway too.
Brown rice in 30 minutes? BOOM. I love brown rice, but I usually hate cooking it, and I have this amazing ability to over or under cook rice no matter what I do. I’ve made this rice a half dozen times now and it comes out perfectly tender and fluffy every time.
I made a few recipes with Planet Rice sprouted rice before deciding on sharing this recipe with you, because it's my favorite out of the bunch. Not only vegetarian, this bad boy is vegan.
Eating vegan doesn’t have to be sad like so many people think it is. (I’m not one of those people). But, I can understand the impression that vegan eating is all about wimpy salads and nothing more. It's simply not true.
This lentils and rice recipe is hearty, filling, and will appease even the most finicky of meat eaters. My husband, John, happily ate this down and didn’t once ask, “umm, where’s the protein?” - his normal go-to question when I serve up anything vegetarian.
The Planet Rice sprouted brown rice couldn’t be easier to make, and while that is simmering away you can chop up and cook the delicious lentil mixture that will top it off. Couldn’t be simpler, or tastier if you ask me.
The best part is you can easily double this recipe and pack the rest away for your lunch for the week.
