I am all for big batch, easy recipes. This lentil and rice dish is a favourite of mine because it can be made in one pot. Plus it has lentils, my most favourite of all the legumes!
Lentils are definitely on my top 10 list of comfort foods. You won’t think I’m crazy for saying this after trying this recipe out. If you’ve never tried lentils, they’re what I call a “meaty” bean. Even the most hardcore carnivore won’t feel like they’re missing out on meat when eating this dish.
Since I’m not much of a sandwich person, I typically make this and divvy it up into lunch sized portions to store in the freezer. That definitely makes for some easy meal planning!
So next time you’re looking for a great freezer meal, or something hearty to feed the family on a cold, snowy evening (say like the one we had here last Thursday). Try this one out, you won’t be disappointed!
