Yes, it looks like Alpo.
(And no, I am not a food photographer.)
But it tastes so good! And it’s good for you, and honestly — aside from toast — might just be the easiest thing you’ll ever cook.
1 cup brown rice
1 cup lentils
1 packet taco seasoning mix
4 cups water
Pick over lentils and rinse. Combine all ingredients in crock pot. Cover and cook for six hours on low.
Serve in tortillas, or taco shells. We had ours on whole-grain tortillas with chopped tomatoes, sour cream, salsa and some cheddar. We would’ve had lettuce, but I was too lazy to hand-wash the salad spinner.
Tomorrow night, we’re having leftovers and my mom and sister are joining us for dinner. I think I’ll saute some onions and peppers in a little olive oil to put on top. Yum!
