Vegetarian Lentil Stir Fry with Brown Rice

Vegetarian Lentils with Brown Rice

This dish is quick and easy to make when you have pre-cooked lentils sitting in your fridge. I have the pre-steamed lentils from Trader Jo’s in my fridge which I love to use to make stews, soups, salads, and stir frys with. Here is one of my favorite quick lentil stir fry recipes.
