Wild & Brown Rice with Black Beluga Lentils
8 oz uncooked brown rice
4 oz uncooked wild rice
4 oz uncooked black beluga lentils
2 1/2 cups vegetable stock
2 1/2 cups plus 1 cup water to cook brown rice and lentils, respectively
Kosher salt, to taste
Cook each rice and the lentils separately:
Brown rice: Combine brown rice with 2 1/2 cups water in a saucepan and stir. Bring to a boil, then lower heat to a simmer. Cover and simmer for about 10-12 minutes, or according to the product instructions, until the water has been absorbed.
Wild rice: Combine wild rice with vegetable stock in a saucepan and stir. Bring to a boil, then lower heat to a simmer. Cover and simmer for 50-60 minutes. Not all the liquid will be absorbed. Drain the rice and reserve the stock.
Black Beluga Lentils: Combine lentils with 1 cup water and bring to a boil. Cover, lower heat and simmer for about 10 minutes. Drain.
Combine the cooked rice and lentils, adding some reserved vegetable stock from the wild rice if the mixture is dry. Season to taste with salt.
