Kung Pao Lentils

A great dish that can be a side or entree. There is some time in the prep, so it would be great to have a rice cooker. There's some other kitchen appliances that cook lentil, which might also be helpful. I got this meal from the Happy Herbivore Meal Mentor.

1 red bell pepper, seeded and diced
1 cup cooked green lentils
2 cups cooked brown rice
2 tbsp soy sauce
1 1/2 tsp cornstarch
2 tsp agave
1 tsp rice vinegar


  1. Cook rice and lentils according to package (or internet or appliance) directions.
  2. Make Kung Pao Sauce by whisking the soy sauce, cornstarch, agave, and rice vinegar in a bowl.
  3. Heat a couple tablespoons oil in a skillet and saute peppers until tender.
  4. Add cooked lentils and Kung Pao Sauce, mix until well combined.
  5. Reduce heat to low, cover, and heat until everything is warm.
  6. Let rest a few minutes.
  7. Served over the cooked brown rice.
