I do not like onions – do NOT like those stinky, vicious, little things!!  However, this dish, made for me by my friend Julia Parkinson, introduced me to caramelized onions.  And they are heavenly!

 

Ingredients

  • 1 (or 2) cups brown lentils, rinsed
  • 1 cup long grain rice, cooked
  • 5 cups water
  • 2 tsp – 1 Tbsp cumin
  • 1-2 Tbsp salt
  • 1-2 tsp pepper
  • 6 shakes Mrs. Dash
  •  1/4 cup oil
  • 2 large onions, cut into long slices, moon shaped*
  • Mrs. Dash, cumin, salt and pepper to taste

 

Directions

Bring lentils to a boil, and add salt.  When cooked, add rice, cumin, pepper, and Mrs. dash

Meanwhile, sauté the onions in the oil until brown (caramelized) with spices.  Put some of onions and onion oil into lentils when they are done, garnish the dish with remaining onions (the best part).  Eat warm or cold with plain yogurt.

*I’ve never figured out how she cut the onions into beautiful crescent shapes.  I just halve them (and maybe quarter them) and slice them.
