Apple Pilaf

1 c lentils
2-3 cloves of garlic, minced
1 onion, chopped
1 large celery stalk, chopped
1/2 tsp ground ginger
1/4 tsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp ground corriander
Black pepper to taste
2 tsp. lemon juice
1 sweet apple, chopped
Dash of cayenne pepper
1 c. brown rice (or wild rice would be awesome)
1/4 c. apple juice
2 c. chicken broth (imitation or more water)
2 c. water

Chopped walnuts for garnish

Saute onion, garlic, and celery until fragrant. Add remaining ingredients and simmer until rice and lentils are tender. If they start to look like they are getting dry or their isn't enough liquid to finish cooking add more water.

Adjust salt and pepper to taste and garnish with chopped walnuts.
