In a large heavy-based casserole, melt the margarine. Add the onion, bell pepper, salt, and black pepper. Cook over medium heat, stirring often, for 15 minutes or until the vegetables soften.
Add the garlic and cook, stirring, for 1 minute.
Stir in the tomatoes, stock or water, rice, lentils, and red pepper. Bring to a boil. Cover and cook over medium-low heat, stirring occasionally, for 50 minutes or until the rice and lentils are tender.
Taste for seasoning, add more salt and black pepper if you like, and serve at once.
