Clean Eating | Slow Cooker Lentil & Rice Casserole Recipe

I found this recipe the other day while looking for another soup to share. The original poster intended for this to be a “soup”, but with barely any liquid remaining in our batch… we dubbed it a casserole. This recipe has hints of Indian food without the knock you over spice. Everyone loved it and there were a few “words” over the last left-over.

  • I used organic ingredients where possible:
  • 2 cups dry lentils
  • 2 cups uncooked long grain brown rice
  • 1 cup chopped carrots
  • ½ cup chopped celery
  • ½ onion, chopped
  • 8 cups water
  • 1 cup vegetable broth
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • ½ teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 1 tablespoon salt
  • 1 tsp curry
  • ¼ tsp cinnamon
  • 1-3 cloves minced garlic (to taste)
  • 1 cup sliced fresh mushrooms (we did not use mushrooms)
  1. Place all ingredients except the mushrooms in the slow cooker and cook on low for 7 to 8 hours. Stir in the mushrooms 1 hour before serving.

    This recipe sounds so delicious and comforting. I think the lentils and mushrooms are a great combination. I have been trying a lot of slow cooker recipes lately and I can’t wait to try this one. Thank you for sharing!

  2. My husband would absolutely love this! Thanks for posting this.

    • Thanks Diane! Yes… my family enjoyed it a LOT. My husband and oldest fought over who was taking the leftovers to work the next day. LOL

  3. Ashley Nolan says

    This looks good, I’ll be making this for dinner tonight!

    • Be sure to watch it Ashley. I left my second batch on the counter overnight to cook and it was a huge pile of mush… I was so disappointed. I think the only difference this time was I didn’t stir it every so often.

    Has anyone used short grain brown rice? Did you need to make adjustments?

  11. Lori says

    Good but mine came out mushy. Not sure where I went wrong. Perhaps I will repurpose it into patties and fry on the stove???? Any suggestions?

    Also this recipe make a lot! I’ll cut the lentils/rice in half next time.

    This sounds perfect for us right now. A great way to work lentils into our diet.
