I found this on the back of a package of Pantry brand lentils and we had it
for supper tonight. It turned out really good. You could add some extra
herbs to jazz it up a bit or maybe substitute your favorite grain, adjusting
the amount of liquid, if needed.
2 green onions, sliced
1 carrot, diced
1/2 cup chopped celery
1/4 cup chopped green bell pepper
2 Tlbs. favorite saute liquid plus extra if needed

2 heaping teaspoons vegetable broth powder
1 cup lentils
1/4 tsp. ground black pepper
1/2 cup long-grain white rice
