Brown Rice and Lentil Pilaf
All right, maybe the sound of a Brown Rice and Lentil Pilaf (page 270) doesn't make your gourmand heart race, but lentils pack a wallop of great protein and, although this simple dish is little more than that, it did catch my weightlifter eye.
Unsurprisingly, the flavors didn't slay me, but I liked it! Yes, I liked it quite a bit. And after it hung out in the fridge overnight, it was even better. Sure, there are hundreds of other recipes in the book for occasions to impress, but when you need a quick, easy weekday meal that lends itself well to leftover-eating, this pilaf is the way to go.
