Rice and Lentils from a Rice Cooker

Rated as 4.25 out of 5 Stars

"Simple and easy main dish or side. This makes a nice base for a meal instead of potatoes or plain rice, or stands on its own. Top with cooked chicken after it's done for a simple, high-protein meal. Add more barley for a better glycemic index."

East to throw in the rice cooker. Use good quality broth/base. Vegetables are great in this. Diced carrot, celery, onion cook nicely. Don't be afraid to add some spices! I like thyme, rosemary...

I like all of these ingredients, but I just didnt love them together. The lentils fell apart, almost acting like a binding to the rice and bulgar. I had to add so many seasonings and flavorings ...
