DIRECTIONS

  • Pick through the lentils, checking for stones, rinse the lentils, and put them in a pot with 3 cups of chicken broth or water.
  • Bring to a boil and simmer for about 20 minutes or until lentils are starting to become tender.
  • Add the rice and cook for an additional 15-20 minutes, until the rice is cooked. Check the mixture occasionally and add more liquid if necessary.
  • While the rice and lentils cook, cut the onions in half and cut each half into thin slices.
  • Heat the oil in a skillet over medium-high heat until shimmering. Add the onions, reduce the heat to medium, and cook, stirring frequently, until the onions are thoroughly browned.
  • Add the onions, salt, and Syrian pepper to the rice and lentils. Add a little more liquid if necessary to keep the mixture moist and simmer for 5 more minutes.
