      I’m not Patricia, but there are a lot of rice dishes here:

      I’ve tried the Dirty Rice and the Hamburger Rice Skillet and thought

      they were good. I’ve also tried a variation of the Homestyle Lentils

      and Rice and thought it was fabulous. The lentil-rice recipe that I

      actually tried is the one from the Tightwad Gazette II. I was

      surprised that my kids actually liked it even though they’re

      lentil-haters. Here’s the recipe:

      Lentil-Rice Casserole

      from The Tightwad Gazette II by Amy Dacycyzn

      3 cups chicken broth, or use water and 1 tablespoon vegetable


      3/4 cup lentils, uncooked

      3/4 cup brown rice, uncooked

      3/4 cup chopped fresh onion

      1/2 teaspoon sweet basil

      1/4 teaspoon oregano

      1/4 teaspoon thyme

      1/4 teaspoon garlic powder

      Blend all together in a casserole dish. Bake, uncovered, for 1 1/2

      hours at 300 degrees. During the last 20 minutes, you may top with 1/2

      cup grated cheddar cheese, if desired.

      My kids liked it with the chicken broth and cheddar cheese. I highly

      recommend the Tightwad Gazette books by Amy Dacycyzn. You can usually

      find them on You may also be able to find them on, ebay or other used book sites.
