  • 1 cup mixed of any lentils & split peas
  • 3 tablespoons mild yellow curry powder*
  • ½ teaspoon Turmeric
  • Salt to taste (optional)
  • 4 cloves garlic*
  • 1 teaspoon oregano
  • 1 cup of mixed veggies of choice (I used frozen mix of corn, peas, carrots and green beans)
  • ½ cup brown rice

A simple and wholesome legumes dish that will tickle your senses with curry and fragrant spices. 55 minutes cook time – though only 3 minutes prep work!



In one pot bring 5 cups of water to a boil. Add 1 cup mixed lentils & split peas.

Add spices and chopped up garlic (don’t add the mixed veggies yet). Cook for 50 minutes on a medium flame.

In a separate pot, bring 1 and ¼ cups of water to a boil. Add ½ cup of brown rice. Cook the rice until water is absorbed on a medium flame. Never mix rice during cooking.

Add the frozen veggies to the lentils and peas and cook for an additional 5 minutes or until the the frozen veggies are equally hot as the lentils and peas.

*Use mild curry powder and garlic to taste.

Chef’s tip:

Serve the lentils and peas topped with the brown rice.
