6 servings (serving size: 1 cup lentil mixture, 1/2 cup rice, and 1 tablespoon feta cheese)

If your low-carb plan restricts carrots, you can leave them out and add 1 1/2 cups diced celery.

How to Make It

Step 1

Combine rice and 2 1/4 cups water in a saucepan, and bring to a boil. Cover, reduce heat, and simmer 45 minutes or until liquid is absorbed. Let rice stand 10 minutes.

Step 2

Combine 6 cups water and lentils in a large saucepan; bring to a boil. Cover, reduce heat, and simmer 20 minutes or until tender. Drain, reserving 1 cup cooking liquid.

Step 3

Preheat oven to 400°.

Step 4

Heat oil in a nonstick skillet coated with cooking spray over medium-high heat. Add carrot and mushrooms; sauté 6 minutes or until mushrooms are lightly browned.

Step 5

Combine lentils, reserved cooking liquid, mushroom mixture, tomatoes, and next 5 ingredients. Spoon mixture into a 2-quart baking dish coated with cooking spray. Cover and bake at 400° for 30 minutes. Remove and discard bay leaf. Spoon lentil mixture over rice; sprinkle with cheese.
