Step 1

In a large pot, add the lentils and rice to the pot. Cover with water and let sit 2-3 minutes to soak. Drain the water and then cover in 3 cups of water or 1 1/2 cups of water and 1 1/2 cups vegetable broth.

Step 2

Cook over medium high heat until the pot reaches a slight boil. Turn down to low and cover. Cook 20 minutes or until the lentils are tender and the water has been absorbed.

Step 3

Once the water has been absorbed, turn off the heat. Add the salsa, cumin, chili powder, salt, cayenne and spinach. Stir to combine

Step 4

Serve hot or cold. Add your favorite toppings like roasted red pepper, avocado, guacamole, greek yogurt (dairy free or regular).
