    6                    scallions -- thinly sliced
    3      cloves        garlic -- thinly sliced
    2                    carrots -- peeled and sliced
    8      ounces        mushrooms -- quartered
    1      cup           rice
    1      cup           lentils -- dried, red
    1 1/2  teaspoons     salt
    1      teaspoon      coriander
    1      teaspoon      cumin
    1      teaspoon      ginger
    1      teaspoon      tumeric
    4      cups          water
    8      ounces        kale or spinach
    1      cup           nonfat yogurt
 
 	  Saute scallions and garlic for three minutes or until slightly
     softened. Add carrots and mushrooms and sautee, stirring occasionally for 5
     minutes or until carrots are crisp - tender.  
 	  Add the rice and lentils, salt, coriander, cumin, ginger and tumeric
     and stir to coat.	
      Add the water and bring to boil over high heat.  
 	  Adjust the heat so the mixture bubbles gently.  Cover and cook for 15
     minutes.  
 	  Stir in the kale.  Cover and cook for 2 minutes or just until the kale
     is slightly wilted.  
      Top each portion with 1/4 cup of yogurt.
