Have you guys heard of a "Kitchari"?
Since I lost some serious water weight overnight, I obviously became impressed with a recipe I ate a BUNCH of yesterday, and for the first time. It's a Kitchari (Indian word that means mixture) of rice and beans and this one has sweet potatoes). I've never made one before but I'm glad I did. I picked this recipe, from Lyndi Ouellette, because it's so easy - fast, low-sodium. It probably let me drop that water-weight because there are so few additions, and the ones there are don't affect me :
3/4 cup brown rice(s)
3/4 cup lentils
1 small cut-up onion
curry powder to taste
salt substitute to taste
a couple cut-up sweet potatoes
3 cups water
You can certainly make it on the stove, adding in potatoes you cook however you like, baked, etc. I used the Instant Pot, so cut them up first. I just mixed everything BUT the potatoes, then laid sweet potatoes over, cooking at Manual 22 minutes, release pressure for 10.
You can serve with the potatoes intact, or mix a little to break them up and get that color all the way through - whichever seems prettier. The Benson's Table Tasty salt substitute is still the favorite here.
