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.
Excellent vegetarian meal with the seven spice blend.
I just made this and it was great. Very easy to make. I used white rice instead and used less water (brown rice always needs more water). Next time I will try it with the brown rice and use more onions. I also pan cooked some turkey sausage I had left over (3 links) and added it to the rice. I was great. This can be eaten w/or w/o meat.
This is one of my favorite foods.
I used standard short grain brown rice and caramelized the onions. Good vegetarian meal served with a tossed salad and pear sauce. Thanks!
YUM! Not the prettiest dish, lol, but delicious comfort food nonetheless. Made for the North Africa/Middle East Forum's Recipe of the Week. :)
