    Helen Ganim's Note:

    I grew up eating this- usually every Friday, because my family doesn't eat meat on Fridays. Its so good, I personally consider it comfort food. Its healthy, simple, and full of fiber! I often eat leftovers in a sandwich with veggies. Goes well with olives, pita bread, raw onion, celery, carrots, lettuce.

    Directions:

    1. 1
      Heat oil in pan.
    2. 2
      add onions, and cook on medium high heat until they are brown- stir occasionally.
    3. 3
      stir in rice and lentils, mix in with onions.
    4. 4
      add water.
    5. 5
      add salt, mix contents.
    6. 6
      cover and simmer.
    7. 7
      This will take over an hour. The water will be absorbed into rice and lentils. Make sure they are soft. Sometimes you may need to add a little more water. Stir occasionally.
    8. 8
      Best if served in a shallow bowl, and let sit for 10 minutes or so. Enjoy warm or cold.

      This recipe is missing the most important ingredients! ALL-SPICE and 7 spices....this will give it the zingggg it needs, that's the correct Lebanese way to make it:) ENJOY.

      :yummy: This is really tasty! I cooked 2 versions of this - one as in the recipe and one with the additiona of 1/2 a chicken stock cube and 1/2 tsp of ras el hanout spices. Both versions were delicious... I agree wholeheartedly that this is comfort food and it's great that it's so healthy and nutritious too. Will have the leftovers for lunch today :) Also reviewed for NA*ME Dish of The Week.

      This is a great recipe - I make it in a slow cooker. Just put the rice, lentils, water and salt in a smaller slowcooker. 3.5 hours on high and it is perfect! We top ours with carmelized onions and serve with a chopped tomato, cucumber, red onion salad dressed with olive oil and lemon juice.
