Even Kids will like this: Lentil Rice Casserole

Lentil Rice Casserole
(4-6 servings)

Bake covered at 300 for 2-2 1/2 hours (which makes it easy to pop in the oven before it gets crazy-hungry dinner time)

Blend together the following in a casserole dish and let stand overnight or 7 hours to improve nutrition:
3 cups water
¾ cup uncooked lentils
½ cup uncooked brown rice
Whey or juice of ½ lemon

Add just before baking:
3-4 tbls Liquid Aminos (I use Braggs Liquid Amino, which can be found at Kroger and health food stores)
1 small onion chipped or ¼ cup instant dry onion
½ tsp basil leaves
¼ tsp oregano leaves
¼ tsp thyme leaves
¼ tsp garlic powder
Bake covered at 300 for 2-2 ½ hours or until tender and the water is absorbed.

We serve it on whole wheat tortillas with grated raw cheese.
