Amazing and Versatile Rice and Lentils

Amazing and Versatile Rice and Lentils

This is a fairly quick recipe that is both delicious and nutritious.

What you need:
1 medium sized onion, diced
2 cloves garlic, crushed
2 tablespoons oil
salt and pepper, to taste
1 cup rice
1 cup lentils
4 cup water/bouillon

What you do:
1. Saute onion and garlic in the oil in medium sized pot, until golden or brown. I like to really brown the onions for the flavor. Season, to taste.
2. After the onions/garlic are as browned as you like them, add the rice, lentils, and water.
3. Bring to a boil, then turn heat to low and simmer for about 30-35 minutes, or until all the water is gone and the rice and lentils are tender but not mushy. Enjoy!
You could add spices according to what you want to make it. An Indian version might include curry powder, chili powder, cinnamon, and cumin. A Mediterranean version might add some tomatoes, basil, parsley, and oregano (topped with a little lemon juice after cooking), or finish off with a little tamari soy sauce after cooking.

Preparation Time: 45 min
