Rice and Lentils for Breakfast

I've been planning this for months and finally this morning I made the decision to make it. Here's the recipe:
  • ¼ cup Rice (Basmati... though long grain would work)
  • ¼ cup Red Lentils
  • ½ cup water
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon curry powder

  1. Place all ingredients into small saucepan. Stir.
  2. Place on stove at high heat until you see the beginnings of boiling.
  3. Put stove setting on low.
  4. Place lid on saucepan.
  5. Wait 10-12 minutes while it slow cooks.
  6. Eat.

  • Cooking a hot rice breakfast may sound weird but rice is a cereal and cereal is a good food to eat at breakfast.
  • There is very little fat in this meal.
  • The rice provides lots of complex carbohydrate while the lentils provide protein. Both are high in fibre.
  • The amounts listed above are enough (probably more than enough) for one person. If you wish to cook for more than one person, simply multiply the amounts.
  • Measurements in metric. 1 cup = 250ml.
  • Other lentils may take longer to cook, so I suggest you stick with the red ones.
