Lentils and Rice

This is an easy side dish that matches any main. This is a huge recipe that many of you will want to divide in half for regular sized families. If you have teenagers, then this sized batch is for you.

1 small yellow onion

5 TB olive oil

3 Cups rice

6 Cups broth

1 TB each: ground coriander, granulated garlic, cumin, and oregano

1 tsp saffron

salt and pepper to taste

2 Cups cooked or canned lentils, drained

Saute onion in oil for 5 minutes until onion is translucent and begins to caramelize. Add rice. Stir to coat evenly. Add broth and seasonings. Cover and reduce heat to simmer. Simmer for 25 minutes or until all the liquid is absorbed. Stir in lentils. Cover and let rest with heat off for 5 minutes.

A great side dish to fish, chicken, or grilled veggies.
