Lentils And Rice
What You Need:
  • 4 medium yellow onions, peeled
  • 3 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 cup lentils
  • 3˝ cups cold water
  • 1 cup long-grain rice
  • 2 teaspoons salt

  • How To Cook:
    1. Dice 3 of the onions. Heat a large frying pan and add 2 tablespoons of the olive oil and the diced onions. Saute until quite brown and set aside.

    2. In a 4-quart covered pot place the lentils and water. Bring to a boil, covered, and then turn down to a simmer. Cook for 15 minutes.

    3. Add the cooked onion to the lentils, along with the rice and salt.

    4. Cover and simmer 20 minutes until rice and lentils are soft. If a bit of water remains unabsorbed, remove from heat and let stand 5 minutes and it will soak in.

    5. Slice the remaining onion into rings. Heat the frying pan again and saute the rings in the remaining olive oil.

    6. To serve, top the lentils with the sauteed onion rings. Accompany with plain yogurt and a lemony green salad, with tomato wedges on the side.

    To Serve: 8
