Koshari (Rice, Lentils) - High Protein, Fiber & Potassium
Considered Egyptian "fast food", this is a fantastic recipe! Not like American fast food! It's different, for certain, but very filling and completely "clean" if you can get fresh tomato sauce!
This can be a vegetarian dish because traditional Koshari has NO CHICKEN in it. I added it in this recipe (and listed as optional) because I wanted added protein (and my husband refuses to eat a dish without meat!).
The "optional" ingredients truly are optional, however, they are included in the nutritional value.
The leftover lentils/macaroni/rice make for an amazing breakfast the next day with some egg whites! Submitted by: NICOLETTEDIMON
