Kosheri - Ethiopian Lentils

Submitted by: MICHELLE_391

Introduction

This is an Ethiopian recipe that I've modified to make less starchy. It is somewhat acidic, but has a nice flavor. It is easy to make, although somewhat time intensive.

Ingredients

    2 cups uncooked brown rice
    1 lb lentils (red or brown)
    2 Tbsp olive oil, divided
    1 Tbsp crushed garlic
    1/2 cup water
    1/4 cup vinegar
    1 medium onion, chopped

Directions

Cook the rice.
Rinse lentils and put them in a pot, covering with water and bring to a boil. Simmer on low heat until almost all of the water is absorbed and the lentils are well-cooked.

To make the sauce, saute garlic in 1 Tbsp oil until golden. Add tomato sauce and simmer for 10-15 minutes.

Add water and vinegar. Boil.

Remove from heat and add salt.

Slice the onion in thin, small pieces and saute until brown.

In a casserole dish or bowl, arrange as a layer of lentils, rice, then lentils and rice. Sprinkle onions and sauce on top before serving.
