Lentil Brown Rice Casserole, My Way

by GettingFreedom on February 10, 2009


I’ve been making Lentil and Brown Rice casserole for quite some time now. We love it! Incredibly frugal, filling, and well, tasty.

But, I’ve also been toying with the idea of adding vegetables, of some sort, to the mix. Tonight was that night.

My only regret, was that I didn’t try it sooner!

The original recipe comes from RecipeZaar. But this is how I did it:

Lentil Brown Rice Casserole
 
Just over 3 cups broth, just use whatever you have on hand.
3/4 cup lentils
1/2 cup brown rice
3/4 cup chopped onion
1 cup of chopped green pepper
1/2 grated carrot
1 teaspoon italian seasoning
1/2 tsp garlic powder
Dash pepper
1 cup grated cheddar cheese
 
Mix everything together in 9×13 dish except for cheese. Cover in aluminum foil and bake at 300 degrees for about 1 hour. Remove foil and add cheese. Throw back in oven until cheese is melted.

I already have this dish pegged at around $1, following the original recipe. With my additions, I probably added around .20 or so. That brings the total cost of this dish to $1.25.

I served this meal with a salad, from lettuce that I got from a manager special a while back. Our total meal cost me no more than $1.75, and there is enough for 8 servings.

Total Cost of Meal: $1.75 Price Per Serving: .22 cents
