DIRECTIONS

  • Cook the lentils in just over a litre of salted water.
  • Bring to a boil, reduce the heat and simmer, covered, for 15-30 minutes, depending on the type of lentils you are using.
  • When the lentils are quite tender, add the rice to the lentils and continue simmering until the rice is cooked, adding water if necessary.
  • Cook the macaroni in a separate pot.
  • Rinse and strain when done.
  • Meanwhile, fry the onions and garlic in the oil until golden.
  • Add the tomatoes, chilli flakes, salt and pepper to taste and let it bubble for 10-20 minutes or until thickened and sauce like.
  • You can now blitz the sauce in a food processor until smooth or just leave as is.
  • Mix the lentils, rice and macaroni together in one pot.
  • Place some of the lentil mixture on each plate and top with tomato sauce.
  • Sprinkle with more hot chili powder or salt and pepper, if desired.
