Rice with Lentils

I originally made up this recipe to go along with the Jamaican Goat Coconut Curry. The original instructions said to serve the curry with rice and lentils (but gave no instructions), so I had to figure it out myself! In the end, I think I came up with a pretty tasty dish. It works well with the curry, but it also works well as a side dish to almost anything. Enjoy!
