Melissa's Favourite Lentils

The recipe for tonight's dinner came from a friend whose young daughter claims this as her favourite dinner. Thus, in our house, it has the above title.

1 1/2 large cans diced tomatoes
6 cups water
1 1/2 cups brown rice (uncooked)
1 1/2 cups split red lentils
1 1/2 cups chopped onion
3/4 cup chopped celery
3 Tbsp instant vegetable stock
4 1/2 tsp dried basil
3/4 tsp pepper

  • Boil all, then cover and simmer on low for about an hour.
  • When cooked, add a few handfuls of grated strong cheese and stir until melted.
  • Top with yogurt or sour cream and a drizzle of spicy sauce (Max & Moritz works).
  • Serve with tortilla chips, flour tortillas, or naan.
