Hi! My name is Megan, I’m the food blogger behind The Domesticated Wolf, a food blog dedicated to healthy and delicious recipes. I’m so thrilled to be here today sharing my newest obsession: lentils with brown rice and lemon kale. This recipe is nutritious, rich in whole grains and packed with the good-for-you green, kale!
I hope you love this recipe!
INGREDIENTS FOR 4 SERVINGS:
½ cup uncooked brown or green lentils (not red lentils, they won’t hold their shape)
½ cup uncooked brown rice
4 cups kale, washed and dried, stems removed and discarded
1 garlic clove, finely minced (you could also push through a garlic press)
1 small red onion, thinly sliced
2 tbsp olive oil
1 lemon, juiced
salt to taste
¼ tsp red pepper flakes, or more to your taste
1. Bring a medium pot of 3 cups water to a boil, add brown rice, stir, cook about 30-40 minutes or until tender, drain any remaining water
2. While the rice is cooking, bring another medium pot of 3 cups water to a boil, add lentils, reduce heat to medium low and cook lentils until just soft but not mushy, about 25-30 minutes, drain any remaining water
