Yum! Came out great! I used a brown rice medley from Trader Joe's. I used approx. 1 tsp cayenne pepper, 2 tsp cumin and about 2 tablespoons lemon juice (give or take a half tbsp - I test tasted the broth as I went along). I did have to add another cup of water to it about 30 minutes into cooking. I also let it cook longer than stated, probably about an hour altogether to be sure all the liquid was soaked up. It was flavorful with a nice kick to it at the end of each bite!
This recipe is delicious! My husband and I really enjoyed it. It vaguely resembles dirty rice without the meat. We added some Slap Ya Mama seasoning to it for some extra kick. We did have to add another 15 minutes or so to the cook time or the rice would have been crunchy. We will eventually try adding some figs or seafood for a new twist. Very simple, easy to follow recipe!
I enjoy this recipe , but theres a few changes I will make next time. Maybe add some garlic and cook it another 30min, Im used to it being mushy where i get it from, maybe from being on the line all day I dont know but thats how I like it, thanks for this, nice basic recipe for sure
This was good. I would have liked a little more guidance on the quantities of lemon juice and cumin, but I think I did alright. I ended up using the juice from 1 lemon and about 2-3 tsp. of cumin. I also used about 1/4 tsp. of cayenne. For some reason this took way longer than 45 minutes to cook. But, it turned out ok. Thanks!
I cooked this in hopes of impressing my Lebanese boater hunny bunny. What a mistake, I should have known by now he is impossible to please. According to him,they would never serve something like this in Lebanon, and non-Arab girls have no business attempting it. Did he say this to be the hateful person he naturally is or is this an overly americanized version of the dish? I don't know. Probably the first. I thought this dish was awesome. I shared it with several people who loved it. I put the leftovers in a wrap with some wheatberries. that was also pretty awesome.
This was delicious. I did not have brown rice so I used normal parboiled rice instead, it came out great. Thanks a lot!
Comfort food at its best. The lemon juice gives this dish a nice tang. Thank you.
This came out great. Great flavor, I used 1 tsp fresh ground cumin and 1/2 tsp Arbol Chile powder. The lentils were a little overcooked for my taste so I will either add them a little later in the process or better yet switch to French Green lentils. I could see this as a great side dish but this time I added some chicken sausage and called it a one bowl meal.
Delicious! Being a jazz singer, I felt free to improvise a bit--subbing lime juice; cooking in veg stock; seasoning also with cinammon; fresh mint and cilantro; and topping with fresh chopped mint, cilantro and sunflower seeds for additional texture. It was YUMMY. ;)))
Fabulously simple and delicious! My carnivore husband even liked it! I have a strange urge to add pineapple to it next time....
