This is a great veggie main, and the lefotver rice makes great faux-meatballs if you use a glutinous rice to begin with. But it's great with any variety of long grain rice, so enjoy! In Egypt, this is also served with elbow macaroni mixed in, but I had it both ways when I was there and I find I prefer it without the pasta (it made it too heavy for my tastes). I've also used the tomato sauce as a pasta sauce before--it's a nice low-cal change of pace!

Lentils, rice and pasta are cooked and then served in a spicy tomato sauce. This is a typical Egyptian dish that is very good and cheap over here! Puree the sauce in a food processor if you like a smoother texture.

These flavorful lentils are great over rice, naan, or potatos cooked in a strong broth
