Rice & Lentils

nutritious and ready in minutes.  This 5-ingredienter is another great creation that can be found on Jules Clancy’s blog Stonesoup (which is totally worth bookmarking by the way). She’s got a ton of fast, healthy, easy recipes that are made with 5 fresh ingredients. I could spend hours browsing, but today will focus on her recipe for Rice & Lentils. It’s ready in 10 minutes, packed with protein, flavor, and just overall goodness. Perfect to whip up as a side or main course midweek.

large pinch dried chili flakes
2 cups cooked long grain rice
1 can (14oz ) lentils, drained
natural yogurt, to serve (optional)

1. Heat a few tablespoons olive oil in frying pan.
2. Add onion and chili and cook over a high heat stirring frequently until softened and starting to brown.
2. Add rice and lentils and stir fry for several minutes until both are heated through.
