Directions

Click:

  1. Preheat the oven to 390°F (200°C).
  2. In a baking dish, toss the potatoes in oil. Add the spices and toss again.
  3. Bake on the middle rack of the oven for 40 minutes, or until lightly golden and crispy, stopping to stir once halfway.
  4. Add the rice and lentils to a medium pot on high heat with the water and a crushed bouillon cube. Bring to a boil then reduce to a simmer, with a lid partially covered. Cooked until all water absorbed and al dente, about 30 minutes. When the liquid has been absorbed and the rice is cooked through, remove it from the heat, and let sit for 5 minutes with the lid covered.
  5. Add the oil and onion to a large pot and sauté on high heat for 5 minutes.
  6. Add the garlic and cook for another 2 minutes.
  7. Add the mushrooms and continue for 5 minutes, or until most of the moisture has evaporated.
  8. Add the spices and bell peppers and cook for another 5 minutes.
  9. Serve by adding the rice and lentil mixture to your bowl, top with the roasted potatoes, followed by the veggies, along with some hummus, guacamole, and olives. Enjoy!
