Fakorizo ( Lentils With Rice)

Fakorizo ( Lentils With Rice) created by Jamilahs_Kitchen

A traditional dish very healthy and full of proteins. I make it more like a pilaf but with more water you can make it like a soup. Of course you can also add some vegetables such as carrots, potatoes...

    I love lentils and think they have their own uniqe flavor but i did feel i needed to add a lil something because of the rice. I tossed in some cumin and and a bay leaf and cooked in chicken stock added carrots and italian parsley for veggies. It was very good I served with fish =)
