- 1.5 cup lentils
- 1 cup brown rice
- onions to taste
- enough olive oil to sauté lentils, rice & onions
- enough water to cook rice & beans
- lemon juice, cumin, pepper, salt to taste
Clean the lentils and rice, put them into a pot, pour in the water and start the slow cooker or bring the pot to simmer. If you want to add flavor, you can sauté the rice and beans before putting them into the slow cooker, or if you are using a cooking pot on the stove, you can saute them right in the pot before adding water. Sauté the onions until they are just beginning to turn brown and add them to the rice & beans after the rice and beans have been cooking for a while.
Cook until the rice and beans are tender and ready to eat.
I like to add the other ingredients toward the end, when the lentils and rice are almost ready to serve.
