Nutrition & Calorie Comments  

Had this for dinner tonight. It was delicious and very easy to make. However, I think the nutritional information is pretty far off. .75 cups of rice and .75 cups of lentils (the serving size), not to mention the olive oil, are way more than 196 calories. But delicious nonetheless! Submitted by:

I haven't tried your recipe but I actually just finished eating this dish that I bought at a local lebanese market & loved it so much I had to find a recipe. I will definately be trying this one.

One question - can you make it with water instead of the broth? to lower the sodium?

mmmmmm. yummy. Nice on a cold wet day.

I did not have any chicken broth, or olive oil. I just made this with plain water, and used a cooking spray for the onions - and it is just as good. Just a few more calories chaved off if anyone desires.

Super simple - super tasty! Thank you!

The dish looks very brown but it was much more appetizing than it looked! I used it as a side dish and paired it with some pork chops. I'm a little concerned about the sodium content - not sure that is correct but I used low fat/low sodium chicken broth. Submitted by:
