      This delicious vegan recipe can be quickly thrown together from things you probably already have in the kitchen

      Serves 6

      1/2 cup uncooked long grain white rice
      2 1/2 cups water
      1 cup red lentils
      1 teaspoon vegetable oil
      1 small onion, chopped
      3 cloves garlic, minced
      1 fresh tomato, chopped
      1/3 cup chopped celery
      1/3 cup chopped carrots
      1/3 cup chopped zucchini
      1 (8 ounce) can tomato sauce
      1 teaspoon dried basil
      1 teaspoon dried oregano
      1 teaspoon ground cumin
      salt and pepper to taste

      Place the rice and 1 cup water in a pot, and bring to a boil. Cover, reduce heat to low, and simmer 20 minutes. Place lentils in a pot with the remaining 1 1/2 cups water, and bring to a boil.

      Cook 15 minutes, or until tender.

      Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).

      Heat the oil in a skillet over medium heat, and stir in the onion and garlic. Mix in tomato, celery, carrots, zucchini, and 1/2 the tomato sauce. Season with 1/2 the basil, 1/2 the oregano, 1/2 the cumin, salt, and pepper.

      Cook until vegetables are tender.

      In a casserole dish, mix the rice, lentils, and vegetables. Top with remaining tomato sauce, and sprinkle with remaining basil, oregano, and cumin.

      Bake 30 minutes in the preheated oven, until bubbly.
