Aspiring Chef

Cooking has always been a passion of mine and lately I've become interested in new ways of combining ingredients.

Above is something I cooked this morning: shallots, garlic, and red lentils with rice are cooked in one pan to make this combination of flavor, carbohydrates and proteins. Because the olive oil and flavors (shallots/garlic/spices) can begin cooking right away, adding vegetables or meats as those things reduce is possible without any preparation.

The dish takes 15-20 minutes from the time of putting the pan on the burners to eating. I boil water seperately as needed and add the lentils a few minutes before the rice to ensure the proper amount of loosening. This is my favorite go-to quick meal for the morning or at the end of a busy day.
