Brown Rice, Lentils & Kale

Tyler loved this one! This one is easy to pull together too (plus you get to julienne some carrots). Give it a try!

Comments

  1. This was tasty. It’s also very adaptable. I didn’t have all the veggies called for so I improvised. I used a delicata squash instead of the zucchini and left out the pepitas. I used precooked lentils from Trader Joe’s and quick cook brown rice and it came together really fast.
