"Enjoy a great tasting dish to share with family and friends. Special dish for vegetarians, and one of our favorite meals. Instead of placing the onion on top you can mix it along with the lentils and rice before serving. It makes a perfect meal with a fresh green salad. Also you can use 2 cups of vegetable broth instead of 2 cups of water to cook the lentils."

  1. Combine the lentils, 2 cups water, 1 teaspoon salt, the cumin, and garlic powder in a pot over medium heat; bring to a simmer, reduce heat to low, and cook until the lentils begin to soften, 20 to 30 minutes.
  2. Stir the rice, 3/4 cup water, 1 teaspoon salt, and the olive oil into the lentils. Cover the pot and continue cooking until the lentils and rice are tender, about 40 minutes.
  3. Heat the cooking oil in a skillet over medium heat; cook the onions in the oil until browned, 7 to 10 minutes. Spread the onions over the rice and lentil mixture to serve.

My only comment about the recipe is that the proportion of lentils to rice was way off. One cup of lentils was too much for the amount of rice in the recipe. I would recommend either increasin...

Came out great but a little too salty. I added a little allspice and I would highly recommend sauteing the onions for longer - until they turn brown preferably. it takes around 30 min but the t...

My husband is from Lebanon and thinks he can cook better than me (German)! So to proof him wrong I cooked this today while he was at work. I also added allspice and cinnamon and 1 tbl Knorr Deli...
