Asian Rice and Lentils

Serves two

Rice and lentils, when eaten together, make a richer balance of protein than if they are eaten seperately.

• 1/2 cup brown rice
• 1/2 cup lentils
• 2 tablespoons butter
• 1 onion, chopped, or 1 tablespoon onion flakes
• 1/2 teaspoon salt
• 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
• 1/2 teaspoon ginger
• 1/2 teaspoon cardamon
• 2 whole cloves
• 1 bay leaf
• pinch cayenne (optional)
• 2 1/2 cups water

Melt butter in cook-pot and add all dry ingredients. Sauté a few minutes and then cover with water. Cover pot, place over low heat, and cook 45 to 60 minutes. To reduce cooking time in camp, try cracking rice and lentils in loosely set grain grinder at home.
