How to Make a Spanish Rice

Making your own rice is a great option if you are watching your sodium. Tomatoes, spices and veggies is all it takes to make this easy, healthy recipe.

In a 3-1/2- or 4-quart slow cooker combine carrots, celery, lentils, uncooked brown rice, mustard, brown sugar, and salt. Stir in vegetable broth and the water.
Cover and cook on high-heat setting for 3 to 3-1/2 hours. Stir in tomato sauce and vinegar. Cover and cook for 30 minutes more.
Halve sweet peppers lengthwise; remove seeds and membranes.* To serve, spoon lentil mixture in and around pepper halves. If desired, sprinkle with parsley.

    If desired, in a Dutch oven cook sweet pepper halves in a large amount of boiling water about 3 minutes or until crisp-tender. Drain well.
