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.

Today, an endless, recombinant, and fundamentally social process generates
countless hours of creative product (another antique term?). To say that this
poses a threat to the record industry is simply comic. The record industry,
though it may not know it yet, has gone the way of the record. Instead, the
recombinant (the bootleg, the remix, the mash-up) has become the characteristic
pivot at the turn of our two centuries.
