lintil, as in lintel soup.?...

little beans.

i guess i could have lintils, with rice, with bits of chicken.

lintil is supposed to be great for ya, but is quite boring by itself.
i'm not much into soups.

same family as kidney beans i think..

i'm sorry...for the life of me i couldn't figure out what the hell you were talking about. A lintel is the frame around a door. *lol*

you could try seasoning them with various spices and kinda stewing them. there's an indian dish called "dhal" that is made like that.

you could also add ham, chicken, other meats and/or veggies to it.

my mom used to make dhal and rice, or kedgiree which had some sort of saltfish in it and the lentils and rice were all cooked together with it. it was good stuff.

next time cook them with some saltpork or uncured bacon

that's a good idea too. or smoked turkey legs or wings.

ok, ,,,,,,,,,, i'm kinda into this diet thing full swing, so i'm gonna decline the bacon deal. bacon at this point scares me. trying to keep it real clean.

well, the lintils are already cooked, so, i'll mix exual parts of lintil and brown rice, and add some chopped up boiled chicken.
i'll see what spices i have laying around, to splash on it.
(maybe soy sauce?)

oh, talking about brown rice, my uncle bens brown rice bag, says,

serving size 1/4 cup ........ that mean dry, 1/4 cup?
fat calories-15
total fat 1.5 grams
sat fat,-0

the 15 fat calories, are nothing to worry about, right?
looking at the 0 sat fat, i guess theres no bad fat in it....

the 15 cals fat are bizare..but that's about a 1.5 grams. as for 1/4 cup. that must be 1/4c dry, because a serving size for rice is 1/2c cooked.

as for your idea of mixing the lentils and rice together with some chicken and seasoning..that sounds like a plan. soy. hot sauce might work too.

some chopped fresh onion and some garlic powder could be good too.
