The Rice Diet Solution by Kitty Gurkin Rosati, Robert Rosati

Lentils are a wonderful food, naturally low in sodium, high in fiber, and high in protein. Quinoa is a grain from South America that is very versatile and a nutritional powerhouse in its own right. Together, they make a smashing duo, drenched in this sultry lime-curry vinaigrette. Because beans/grains are nutritionally dense, they also come with calories -- use this dish as a modest-size main course or serve half the amount for a side dish.
Yield: 5 servings (1 cup per serving)

• 1 cup lentils, uncooked
• 1/2 cup quinoa, uncooked
• 1/3 cup scallions, chopped

• 1/8 cup canola oil
• 6 tablespoons lime juice, freshly squeezed
• 2 tablespoons curry powder
• 2 tablespoons ginger, freshly grated
• 1 teaspoon ground coriander

Cook the lentils until tender, about 20 minutes. Drain and allow to cool.

Cook the quinoa per instructions until translucent and tender. Allow to cool; there should not be any water remaining in the pot.

Chop scallions; use more if you like.

Place all the ingredients for the vinaigrette in a separate bowl and stir thoroughly. Adjust spices to suit your taste.

Mix the lentils, quinoa, and scallions together in a large serving bowl and fold in the vinaigrette.
