Number of Servings: 4

Ingredients

    1 Medium Sized Onion, finely sliced
    1 Tbsp Olive Oil
    1 Tbsp Cumin seed, ground
    1 Tbsp Coriander seed, ground
    1 Can of Mushrooms, drained
    1 Can of Lentils, rinsed and drained
    2 Cups Long Grain Brown Rice, cooked
    Salt and Pepper to taste (approx 1/2 tsp each)

Directions

Begin by putting the long grain brown rice on to cook according to the directions on the package. (One cup of dry rice will make approximately 2 cups of cooked rice.)

Cut the onion into thin slices and chop into bite sized pieces.

Heat the olive oil in a large pan and add the onion.

Cook the onion until the edges begin to turn a golden brown colour.

Add the cumin and coriander and mix well.

Add the mushrooms and lentils, mixing well again. There should be a bit of liquid in the bottom of the pan. If not, add 1-3 Tbsp of water just to keep the mixture moist.

Heat the mixture over medium-low heat until your rice has finished cooking.

Add the cooked rice to the mixture in the pan, mix thoroughly.

Add salt and pepper to taste.

Enjoy!
