    internetnut's Note:

    I got this recipe from Cornell Cooperative Extension. I helped make this at cooking on a budget cooking class. This was the first time I cooked with or tried lentils. I thought this was so good tasting and very easy to make.

    Directions:

    1. 1
      Rinse lentils. If possible, soak in warm water for at least 2 hours. Drain and set aside. If you don't soak the lentils, they may need more water and take longer to cook.
    2. 2
      Heat the oil in a large saucepan over medium-high heat. Add the onions, and saute until golden brown about 10-15 minutes. Set aside 1 cup of the sauteed onions for garnish. Add the rice to the onions and saute until well coated with oil, about 1 minute.
    3. 3
      Add lentils, water, salt, pepper, spices and bay leaf. Bring to a boil, reduce heat and cook covered over low heat for 20 minutes.
    4. 4
      Remove from heat and let stand for 5 minutes. Remove bay leaf. Fluff lentils with a fork. Serve on a large platter and scatter the remaining 1 cup of sauteed onions on top. Garnish with non-fat yogurt if desired. Be sure to taste for seasoning.
