Mujadarrah

This is another one of the recipes that I received from my wedding shower from Erin, my lovely college roommate.  This is a middle-eastern comfort food.  Lentils are always a hit at our home, so we're very excited to eat it!

Ingredients:

  • 6 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 large onion, sliced into rings
  • 1 1/3 cups lentils (uncooked)
  • 3/4 cup long grain white rice
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 1/4 cup plain yogurt or sour cream
Method:
  1. Heat oil in large skillet over medium heat
  2. Cook onions until browned and set aside
  3. Place lentils in lightly salted water and cover (bring them to a boil, reduce heat, and simmer 15 minutes)
  4. Stir in rice and extra water to cover.  Add salt and pepper.  Cover and simmer until tender (about 25 minutes)
  5. Mix in onions and serve with yogurt or sour cream
