Number of Servings: 4


    ✦ 1.5 cups dried brown lentils
    ✦ 1 cup brown rice, uncooked
    ✦ 2 medium onions, thinly sliced
    ✦ a few teaspoons sea salt and a few pinches of black pepper
    ✦ juice of one lemon
    ✦ 1/4 cup olive oil


I did not use Salt when making this.


Rinse lentils and pick over to remove any small stones that might have gotten mixed in.
In a large saucepan, cover lentils with water and bring to a boil. Sprinkle in a few pinches of sea salt,
then reduce heat to medium, cover, and simmer.
While the lentils cook, rinse the rice until the water runs clear. Aer the lentils have cooked for 15
minutes, add the rice to the lentils, cover with water again. Cover pan with lid and simmer until lentils
and rice are tender. is should take another 10 to 15 minutes.
While the lentils and rice cook, heat the olive oil in a medium skillet over medium heat. Add the sliced
onions, stir to coat in oil, and stir occasionally until very brown and slightly crispy but not burnt, 12
minutes or so. Season with sea salt to taste and remove from heat.
Remove lentils and rice from heat once they're tender. Set aside a few of the cooked onions for
garnishing, then combine the remaining onions with the lentils and rice and stir together. Stir in the
lemon juice, a tablespoon or so at a time, until the acidity is prominent but not overly so. Season to taste
with sea salt and black pepper and serve with reserved onions.
