Lentil Rice Stir Fry

What is your favorite thing to make for dinner?

My favorite thing to make for dinner is something that is quick and easy. Something that I don't have to look back and forth at the recipe to make {that is if I use a recipe}. When I do use a recipe, I often use it more as a guide, since I don't like being a slave it. 

For dinner, I often have 1/2-1 lb. meat and veggies stirred together. Nothing elaborate, but nutritious and delicious. At least one or two nights a week, I try to eat something vegetarian to cut down on the cost of groceries. Tonight we had Lentil Rice Stir Fry

Cook 3/4 cup rice and 3/4 cup lentils in rice cooker.

Meanwhile make sure your children are still living and getting along with each other. Once your children have calmed down and their needs are met. 

Dice 1 onion and saute it in 1 tsp. coconut oil for about five minutes.

Add 16 oz. mixed frozen vegetables {I used a peas and carrots mix} and stir for 5 minutes.

Add the cooked rice and lentils to vegetable mix and stir around.

Add 2-4 Tbsp. soy sauce and liberally sprinkle garlic powder to rice, lentils, and vegetables. I purchase gluten free soy sauce, not because we have to eat gluten free, but because I know others that have to eat gluten free food and I don't want them to wonder if something is gluten free. 

Add 4 egg whites {I used egg yolks earlier today} and cook for about 3 more minutes.

Serve hot. Feel free to add sriracha sauce and check out this 2Go 1-Pack!

  1. That sounds amazing- thanks for sharing your recipe!

  2. I've had lentils in soup before but never with rice. It sounds like a flavorful dish.

  3. This dish sounds like one my family would love!

  4. This looks so yummy & looks like a pretty easy recipe to do. I prefer the gluten free soy sauce as well for my family. Thanks for the great recipe, that my kids will love.

  5. That looks soooo good! Thanks for sharing! My husband eats a lot of rice!

  6. Do you use the amount of water you would for 1-1/2 cups of rice in the rice cooker? I've never made anything besides rice in it. And I always use extra water and drain in when cooking lentils on the stove. Thanks! Can't wait to try this simple vegetarian recipe!!

  7. That sounds really good! Why did you only use the egg whites?
