  • 1 cup uncooked quinoa
  • 1 cup dried lentils, rinsed and drained
  • 5 cups water or stock
  • 1 small yellow onion, chopped
  • 8 whole cloves garlic
  • ¼ cup minced fresh herbes such as cilantro, Italian parsley & dill
  • Soy sauce
  • Sea salt and black pepper
  1. Place all ingredients except herbs, soy sauce, salt, and pepper in a medium size pot over medium-high heat.
  2. Cook until all the liquid is absorbed, about 25 minutes, stirring occasionally. The consistency should be just slightly liquidy. Add more water if necessary as cooking. Add herbs, soy sauce, salt and pepper to taste.

Countless.......Try them all!

    This recipe is a staple for me. I absolutely love it. Leftovers make great filling for wraps and such. However, please use red lentils! The green ones make for a very unappetizing color in the finished dish.

    You are pronouncing the word Kitchari wrong. You are saying “Keechaaree” The correct sound is Kicharee. Short” I” sound and short “a” sound as in “u”

      Hi Raz, I sincerely apologize and realized it after I filmed the segment.
