Amazing Red Lentils and Wild Rice Recipe! Give out the recipe…I kick your A#$!!!

,

OK gang, if they are not already a staple in your diet, then make them one NOW. I’m talking lentils my friend. Full of great fiber, protein and all kinds of wonderful nutrients. I personally always make my lentils with wild rice. The combination of lentils and rice forms a complete protein (amino acid profile). This recipe utilizes red lentils which are small and cook quickly. In fact, they almost appear gone. But…it’s this factor that creates such a creamy texture that everyone is sure to love. Try this recipe on non-lentil lovers and watch them convert!!!! ENJOY!
