Brown Rice and Lentil Casserole

Prep Time: 5 minutes | Cook Time: 50 minutes | Total Time: 55 minutes | Yield: Serves 4-6


  • 3 cups broth (chicken or vegetable)
  • 1 cup lentils
  • 1/2 cup brown rice

  • 1 tsp Italian seasoning
  • 1/4 tsp garlic powder
  • 1 cup grated cheese (cheddar or a blend of whatever)


  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
  2. Mix all ingredients except the cheese in a baking dish, square or rectangular.

This is so simple, and so boring. But we love it. Can also add fresh garlic, carrots, etc.

Can also give as a gift: brown rice, lentils, dehydrated garlic and onions, bullion granules and Italian seasoning, with recipe printed out and tied with ribbon.
