I was winging this as I went along. It didn't smell spicy so I added some salsa.
Lentils with carrots, coconut milk, garlic, and salsa. Stir and let simmer while you have more coffee and contemplate the mess in the rest of your house.
I added a bit of fresh baby spinach since I had it on hand but it's not a necessary ingredient.
For the rice, my electric rice cooker had a nonstick coating that was starting to peel so we threw it out. I haven't made rice in ages. Today, I tried Thai jasmine rice in the microwave. Stove top rice is way to messy in my opinion. Add one cup of rice to a large microwave safe dish with 2.25 cups of water. Cover and cook on High for 5 minutes.
After the first 5 minutes, without disturbing, cook on high for another 5 minutes. Stir, then cover and microwave for 3 more minutes. Fluff, cover and set aside until needed. There was a bit of boil-over but the results were good without hassle or stove-top mess.
For the fruit course, 2 sliced granny smith apples.
