Caramelized Beet-Lentil Pilaf

Simple, affordable, and a complete protein—there's a reason why rice and legumes are a staple meal in so many different cultures. Here, tender white rice and quick-cooking lentils make a hearty and satisfying vegetarian bowl. To dress things up and deepen the flavor, quick-cooking grated beets were caramelized and then simmered them with the grain mixture, and it's all topped off with a dollop of creamy yogurt and a sprinkle of Aleppo pepper.

Cook's Notes

If the greens don't come attached to your beets, Swiss chard will make a fine substitution.
