Introduction

This traditional Lebanese dish is often served during Lent by Lebanese Christians. The consistency is similar to chili, however it may be thinned according to personal taste. I have updated the recipe, significantly reducing the amount of oil and substituting brown for white rice, to make it even more Spark friendly.

Ingredients

    1/4 c. dried lentils
    1/4 c. dried garbanzo beans
    1/4 c. dried lima beans
    1/4 c. dried black beans
    7-8 c. water
    1 Tbsp. cumin
    1 large onion, coarsely chopped
    2 Tbsp. olive oil
    1/4 c. brown rice
    salt to taste (not included in nutritional information)

Directions

Wash all the dried beans and soak them overnight. Drain. Place the beans in a pot with the water and cover. Bring to a boil, add the cumin, reduce the heat, and cook on medium heat. Meanwhile, sauté the onion in the oil. After the beans have cooked on medium heat for 30 minutes, add the rice, onions, and salt. Cook until all of the ingredients are tender, about 20 minutes more.
