DIRECTIONS

  • Mix the seasoning ingredients together.(salt, cinnamon,black pepper, paprika, all-spice,cumin)Set aside.
  • In a heavy pot, fry the onions on med-high heat, stirring occasionally, until golden brown. (Do not skip this step, it adds greatly to the flavor, you can however, cut out some of the olive oil, but I wouldn't cut out more than half.).
  • Remove onions with a slotted spoon, and set them aside, leaving the oil in the pot.
  • Reduce heat to medium, add the garlic and seasoning mixture. Stir for 2 minutes. Do not burn the garlic.
  • Add the water and bring it to a boil, then add the lentils, stir gently and let simmer for 5 minutes.
  • Add the rice, reduce the heat to low, cover and cook for 20 minutes.
  • Remove from the heat let sit for five minutes,remove the lid and stir in the onions.
  • Serve and enjoy!
