A traditional dish very healthy and full of proteins. I make it more like a pilaf but with more water you can make it like a soup. Of course you can also add some vegetables such as carrots, potatoes...
- Boil the lentils in a pot with plenty of water until tender.Drain.
- Heat the olive oil and put the onion and the garlic and cook until transucent. Then add the rice and the lentils. Add 2 cup of water, (or more if you prefer the soup). With the 2 cups of water is more like a pilaf as you can see from the photos.
- Add the tomato paste.
- Season to taste.
- Cook for 40-50 minutes.
