~ Hillbilly Housewife

3/4 cup dried lentils
3/4 cup brown rice
4 c. tap water
4 bouillon cubes (or 4 t.)
2 t. chili powder
1/2 t. cumin
1 t. onion powder
1/4 t. garlic powder

In 2 quart saucepan bring water to boil. As it's heating add all other ingredients. Bring to rapid boil, then reduce heat to low. Put on the lid and simmer 45-50 minutes. The water should be mostly absorbed.

Makes about 4 cups.

Notes: You can use four cups of your favorite broth instead of the water and bouillon or just use plain water. I often use plain water, no broth or bouillon, and it still tastes great. If you want to free up a burner, then go ahead and make this in a rice cooker.

I used vegetable broth instead of water and bouillon when I make this.

Kelly - Good idea! I often skip the bouillon, but broth sounds good.
