Lentil & Brown Rice Tacos

Lentil & Brown Rice Tacos 

(A Little Bit Crunchy A Little Bit Rock and Roll)

(adapted from Hillbilly Housewife)


3/4 cup dry brown lentils, rinsed

3/4 cup brown rice

4 cups vegetable stock

2 teaspoons chili powder

1/2 teaspoon cumin

1 small onion, diced

1-2 cloves garlic, minced

1 tablespoon olive oil


In a medium sized saucepan, saute the onion in the olive oil for about 4 minutes.  Add the garlic, chili powder, and cumin.  Cook for about a minute to toast the spices in the oil.  Add the brown rice and stir to coat the rice in the spices.  Add the lentils and vegetable stock.


Bring the mixture to a boil.  Cover and reduce the heat to a simmer and cook for about 45 to 50 minutes.  


Fluff with a fork and serve with your favorite taco fixings.
