Ingredients

Instructions

    1. Wash and drain your rice and lentils and set aside.
    2. In large non-stick skillet over medium-high heat, heat olive oil for a few minutes.
    3. Add onions and stir well to coat all pieces with oil.
    4. Stir frequently until onions are caramelized, crisp at the edges and starting to turn golden brown - about 10 minutes. 
    5. Add Red lentils and rice and stir well with onions.
    6. Add warm water, cover the pot and bring mixture to a boil.
    7. Reduce heat to low, keep pot covered, and cook until the water is absorbed and the rice and lentils are both cooked through - about 15 minutes. Stirring occasionally to prevent mixture from sticking to bottom of skillet.
    8. Transfer Red Lentil Mujadara to serving plates immediately while still hot.
    9. Serve hot, warm or at room temperature with your favorite salad and pita bread.
    10. Enjoy!
