    We like to make burritos and/or tacos by mixing brown rice, ground turkey, and pinto beans together. Season the whole thing with taco seasoning (Target carries some all natural taco seasonings).

    And here's one of our family favorites. Lentil and Rice casserole. You wouldn't believe how good it actually is!!

    3c. chicken broth
    3/4c. uncooked lentils
    1/2c. uncooked brown rice
    3/4c. chopped onion (or 1/2 tsp onion powder)
    1/2 tsp basil
    1/4 tsp oregano
    1/4 tsp thyme
    1/4 tsp garlic powder
    1 cup Shredded Cheddar cheese

    Mix all together (except cheese) and bake in a greased, covered dish at 300 for 1 1/2 hours. Or you can cook in crockpot until liquid is absorbed. Add the cheese the last 10 minutes of baking. (I prefer this in the oven, though -- sometimes it can get too mushy in the crockpot)

    For our family of 4, I usually make 1 1/2 times the recipie.
