lentils & spinach rice bowl
I have Sophie to thank for this one. Because of my pup's sensitive stomach, I've been reduced to serving up people food - a combination of rice, chicken and green beans. (she loves it and it's working like a charm) Anyway...
The other day (as I was making sensitive doggie food) I couldn't find anything for lunch (for myself) except a bit of leftover lentil soup. I looked at the pot of plain rice. I looked at the soup. I remembered that we had fresh baby spinach...
I added a scoop of hot rice to the bowl, added a generous handful of torn spinach and then topped it all with reheated lentil soup. Stir to mix and the spinach wilts beautifully.
Whoa Nellie. It was so good I headed out for more spinach, lentil soup (I get Progresso 99% Fat Free) and brown rice. Your meal takes less than 10 minutes and even less if you have leftover rice.
