Good idea, but there was too much water as the recipe goes. The flavors were awesome. However, the only thing I added was a splash of vinegar to brighten the flavors a little. Otherwise, play with it, but use this as a starting point. Also, you could put more TVP in it, you can barely tell there is any in there.
Decent flavor. Kind of bland though. Good for a side dish, or maybe with grilled chicken on top.
This was great! I switched it up a bit though. I used a potato instead of TVP and I added a clove of garlic to the onion saute. I also followed the advise of the other comment and added a splash of vinegar at the end. She's right there is way too much water so I let it simmer that 20 min. instead of letting it stand. I will definately make it again!
Love it! I used 3 14oz cans of vegetable broth to replace all the water, 2 boullion cubes, and no curry (didn't have any). I substituted brown rice for white and let it simmer longer. We ate it on tortillas with cheese & sour cream. Delish!
This recipe was good but I had to make some changes. I didn't have quite enough brown lentils so I added some red lentils to make up the difference. Next time I think I'll do half and half because the red lentils added a nice texture and the brown lentils were a little overwhelming.
I reduced the amount of water used in the second step, instead used enough to follow the package directions for the rice and TVP, and it worked out well. I was paranoid the rice wouldn't cook fully without heat so I simmered everything for 10 minutes and then let it sit covered for another 10 minutes. The rice cooked completely and there was no excess water.
I took others' suggestions and added a splash of red wine vinegar at the end. It really did help brighten the flavor. I think I will add more curry powder next time.
This recipe is perfect for a chilly fall night. I would advise "eyeballing" the water amount to your liking. I used brown rice and doubled the recipe size. The curry and cumin were a nice touch. We made it just a tad soupy and served buttermilk cornbread on the side. Very healthy alternative recipe. Thanks for sharing!
This was excellent. I added a diced potato instead of TVP and it was excellent. The only problem is that the rice did not cook all the way. Next time i make it I plan on partially cooking the rice in the 2.5C of water and then adding it to the pot. i also simmered it covered for 10 minutes and uncovered for 15 minutes instead of letting it sit. Overall a very flavorful dish and i will be making it again
