Weekly Recipe: Coconut Brown Rice and Curried Vegetables with Lentils

Coconut Brown Rice and Curried Vegetables with Lentils

1 bottle lentils
2 cups mixed frozen veggies
2 cloves garlic
1 small onion
1 can lite coconut milk
3/4 cup water
1 cup brown rice (regular or jasmine)
2 handfuls raisins
1-2 Tbsp. curry powder
1 Tbsp. sesame oil

Put water and coconut milk in a pot and bring to a boil. Add rice and then lower to simmer until liquid evaporates. Meanwhile, add oil, garlic, onion and spices to pan and saute until fragrant. Add frozen veggies and cook until almost done. Then add lentils, raisins, and adjust seasonings. Simmer until rice is done, add rice, stir and serve.

This is another highly versatile recipe. Add any veggies you like. I think it would have been delicious with some red pepper and maybe a bit of spice like chili peppers. I used normal brown rice for this dish and it was delicious! So experiment and enjoy!
