I like lentils. I like corn meal. I was tired of lentils and rice so went looking for other protein compliments for lentils. I found corn, and potatoes are good compliments for lentil proteins. 2 cups lentils, 1 cup corn meal, 1 died yam. 5 cups water. 12 oz can tomato sauce. 14 oz can kernel corn 4 cloves garlic. 1 onion diced. 2 teaspoons each of basil, oregano, chili powder. 2 tablespoon olive oil. Put everything in a rice cooker,stir, turn on rice cooker. Check rice cooker after 10 minutes, stir, continue cooking until lentils are tender. I think this is delicious, but dont have any victims to cook for and verify.
