Unsupervised Cooking: 40 min

this has always been one of my standbys. It's good by itself, topped with yogurt and chutney or raisins, and it makes a fine stuffing for acorn squash. If you double the quantities below, you'll have more than enough for an evening's meal and stuffing for acorn squash the following night.

1 to 2 tablespoons (15 - 30 ml) safflower oil
1/2 onion, chopped
3 cloves garlic, minced or put through a press
1/4 teaspoon (1.25 ml) ground ginger
1/2 teaspoons ((2.5 ml) turmeric
2 to 3 teaspoons (10 - 15 ml) curry powder, to taste
1 cup (250 ml) brown rice, washed
3/4 cup (180 ml) dried lentils, washed and picked over
4 cups (950 ml) water
2 vegetable bouillen Cubes
