Lentil Rice

Here's a rice side dish that's very easy to prepare. It's economic to buy and full of flavour, so it makes a great alternative to plain rice or other starch side dishes. It uses a simple presentation technique that makes it look so neat it wouldn't look out of place on Masterchef Goes Large.


½ cup rice
¼ cup lentils
½ tsp turmeric
1 tsp cajun spice
1 tsp tumeric

Cooking Instructions

  • Cook the rice, lentils and a few raisins altogether in pot.
  • Add Cajun spice (or more if prefer spicier) and turmeric.
  • Cook until rice is soft (needs to be soft and sticky so it can be shaped).
  • Fill a small bowl (sprayed with non-stick spray) with the rice mix and press it firmly down. Turn over bowl on plate.
  • Garnish with parsley.
