jjhunter: Watercolor purple ruffled monster with mouthful of raw vegetables looks exceedingly self-pleased (veggie monster)

Cheap, easy, stores well, and can be jazzed up with further additions to vary latter servings - this recipe is one of my fallback staples.

2 Tbsp. safflower oil (or canola oil)
1/2 onion, chopped
3 cloves garlic, minced or put through a press
1/4 tsp. ground ginger
1/2 tsp. tumeric
2 to 3 tsp. curry powder
1 cup brown rice, washed
3/4 c dried lentils, washed and picked over
4 cups of stock (or 4 cups water + 2 vegetable bouillon cubes)
salt to taste
1/2 cup currants or raisins
1/4 cup sunflower seeds

Instructions:
Heat oil in heavy-bottomed pot (you'll need a lid later) and saute onion and garlic until translucent. Add ginger, tumeric and curry powder and saute a few minutes longer. (Can add more oil if necessary.) Add rice and saute for a few more minutes to coat the rice. Add the lentils, stock, raisins, and sunflower seeds, and bring to a boil. Reduce the heat, cover, and simmer for 25 minutes.

Excellent served with yogurt, or with Waldorf salad.

Extras my mom recommends:
Would be good with butternut squash...roasted in chunks (with parsnips perhaps? ) or bake the squash, scoop it out and whip it with a bit of orange juice and nutmeg. Saute some dark greens (chard, spinach) with olive oil, garlic, pinenuts as a second vegetable.
