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!



  • 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


  1. In one pot bring 5 cups of water to a boil. Add 1 cup mixed lentils & split peas.
  2. Add spices and chopped up garlic (don’t add the mixed veggies yet). Cook for 50 minutes on a medium flame.
  3. 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.
  4. 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.

I cooked it longer, and let it sit a few minutes before serving. I also used bone and vegetable broth. It thickened beautifully and was delicious. My husband had 3 servings of it. Will definitely make it again.

This came out soup-like and tasteless. 5 cups of water is way too much.

Thanks Merilyn. I’m just making it now and am glad I saw your post. Will 4 cups of water instead of 5 be about right?

This is so simple to make and it tastes really good! I added 1 teaspoon of cumin to the recipe as well (I love cumin!) Delicious!

Tastes very healthy. I used supergreens, green onion and peas with a little leftover sweet potato and fresh parley on top. My husband enjoyed it.
