Lentils and Rice
1 cup short-grained brown rice
1 cup lentils (tiny french ones are my fave...)
1 carrot sliced/chopped
1 celery stalk sliced/chopped
1 onion ""
2 cloves of garlic crushed or 1 tsp garlic powder
2 tsp cumin ( or more!)
dash of cinnamon (optional)
1 tsp coriander
Salt to taste
1 bay leaf
minced parsley or coriander leaves are also good in it!
Throw all this in a pot with enough water to cover it all by about 1 inch.
Boil on medium heat, covered, for about 30-40 min or until the rice and

Remove bay leaf! Let it sit about 5 min, covered to let any remaining
