Middle Eastern Inspired Lentils and Rice

This dish doesn't look pretty but its easy, tasty and nutritious and thats a win in my book, it was inspired by a tiktok I saw. It really should have caramelized onions but I wasn't so patient. I will definitely be adding this into the cooking rotation. 

Middle Eastern inspired lentils and rice

 ( Mujadara ) I just didn’t add caramelized onion.


- 1/2 a red onion chopped 
- 2 cloves of chopped garlic 
- 2 bay leaves 
- salt to taste 
- one liter vegetable stock 
- 1/4 teaspoon all spice 
- 1/4 teaspoon cumin powder 
- one cup of brown lentils
- 1.5 cups of rice 

Method -

1. Sauté the onion and garlic for 7-10 min add spices and bay leaves 
2. Add the lentils and rice and salt and stock 
3. Simmer for 20-25 min until cooked stir in some fresh parsley.

This is a lovely one pot meal, would be great with yogurt, salad, meat or fish, hummus or baba ganoush.
