Lentil/Rice Tacos

I apologize for not posting in awhile.  We've recently moved 1500 miles away and the Pater Familias is now in law school!.  Plus, I've been quite busy on http://www.my-home-remedies.com, but I'm ready to start blogging again.

I wanted to share my most recent, new favorite food recipe.  It's quite tasty, nutritious and super easy!

Lentil/Rice Tacos     (The Pater Familias likes these better than regular taco meat, and so do the rest of us).

1 cup lentils
1 cup brown or wild rice
1 onion, chopped
1 clove garlic, minced
1 tsp salt (I use "real salt")
1 tsp. thyme
1 tsp. basil
1 tsp. cumin

 Shredded cheddar cheese
Corn tortillas
Tomatoes/Lettuce, etc.

Throw the lentils and rice in a pot with enough water to cook them (follow the specific amounts for your rice and lentils).  Add onion, garlic, salt and spices. Let simmer for 45 minutes or so until done. 

Cut the corn tortillas into quarters and gently pan fry the "chips" in a small amount of oil (I use olive or coconut oil) until they get slightly crisp, but not burnt.

Serve with shredded cheese, lettuce and tomato.
