What's cooking at our house . . .

We are trying to eat healthier in the New Year . . . okay, so we always try to eat healthy (it's just that sometimes we're more successful than others). Anyway, I found this recipe a few months back and we LOVE it! It's really healthy and very inexpensive too, which is another plus!

Lentil and Brown Rice Casserole
3 cups broth (chicken or veggie)
3/4 cup green lentils
1/2 cup brown rice
1/2 yellow onion, chopped
2 teaspoons Italian seasoning
1 teaspoon garlic powder
1/2 teaspoon pepper
2 cups shredded sharp cheddar cheese

Directions: Preheat oven to 300. Combine broth, lentils, rice, onion, and spices in 13x9 glass baking dish. Stir together and cover tightly with foil. Bake for 1 hour and 10 minutes. Remove foil and sprinkle with shredded cheese. Return to oven and bake uncovered for 20 more minutes, or until cheese is melted.
Serve with steamed broccoli or a garden salad. Enjoy!
