    Japanese Delight's Note:

    A wonderful light lunch or side dish. I even chopped up some chicken and mixed it in for a light dinner with crusty bread. Recipe courtesy Giada De Laurentis.

    Directions:

    1. 1
      Heat 1 tablespoon of oil in a large saucepan. Add the carrot, onion, and garlic and saute until the onion is translucent, about 5 minutes.
    2. 2
      Stir in the lentils.
    3. 3
      Add 2 1/2 cups of broth and bring to a boil over high heat. Decrease the heat to medium-low. Cover and simmer gently until the lentils are just tender, about 15 minutes. Drain well. Transfer the lentils to a large bowl.
    4. 4
      Meanwhile, bring the remaining 2 cups broth and bay leaf to a boil in a medium saucepan over high heat. Add the rice and return the broth to a simmer. Cover and simmer gently over low heat until the rice is tender and the liquid is absorbed, about 20 minutes (do not stir the rice as it cooks).
    5. 5
      Remove the saucepan from the heat. Fluff the rice with a large fork. Transfer to the bowl with the lentils.
    6. 6
      Add the olives, parsley, thyme, and lemon peel. Toss the rice mixture with the remaining 3 tablespoons oil to coat.
    7. 7
      Season, to taste, with salt and pepper.
    8. 8
      Serve warm or at room temperature.
