Curried Risotto: In an effort to be healthy and incorporate more vegetarian protein into my diet I came up with this recipe using basmati rice, red lentils and broth.

Ingredients

  • Minced Garlic, 1 Tsbp
  • Onions, raw, 1 cup, chopped 
  • White Rice, long grain, 1 cup
  • Madras Paste, 2 Tbsp

  • Chopped Cilantro, 1/4 Cup
  • Ground Coriander Seed, 1 Tsp
  • Bay Leaves, 2
  • Bouillon Cube
  • Boiling Water, 4 Cups

Directions

    1. Saute onions & garlic until soft
    2. Add spices and curry paste
    3. Add 1 cup rice and saute for a few minutes.
    4. Dissolve bouillon cube in hot water and add to pot
    5. Add lentils and bring to a boil.
    6. Simmer for 20 minutes or until rice is cooked.
    7. Stir in chopped cilantro and serve.
