Lentil, Brown Rice and Sausage Bake

Thursday, February 23, 2012 § 0

Comfort food at is best! This meal is cheap and filling. I don't remember where I came across this lentil and brown rice base originally, but I've been playing around with it for a while and this is definitely my favorite version!

 I have realized since I started blogging that a lot of my recipes are just really not pretty... But I promise they are tasty! 

Lentil, Brown Rice and Sausage bake

3/4 cup lentils
1/2 cup brown rice
3 cups broth, water, or a combination of the two 
1 cup chopped onion
1 cup chopped bell pepper (I used frozen)
2 tsp cajun seasoning
1 tsp garlic powder
1/2 tsp pepper
2 cups shredded cheese, divided (I used mexi-blend)
1 package andouille sausage, cut to bite sized pieces (I used turkey andouille)

Mix  all ingredients (except one cup of cheese) in a baking dish. I usually use a large corningware dish (or my new covered stoneware, but it seems to take a lot longer!) 

Cover and bake at 300 for an hour. From here it just depends on your oven and dish. I check it every 20 minutes until nearly done (most of the liquid absorbed, and I usually taste a lentil just to be safe) then add the other half of the cheese on top and bake the last bit uncovered. 

What's this?
