Mujadarrah (Lentils and Rice with Fried Onions)

This vegetarian dish
I saw the recipe
some time ago
had it on my menu
a few weeks
and never got to it
this week
I had something else on my menu
but didn't have all the ingredients
so I made this instead
and I'm so glad I did!

Majadarrah - Lentils and Rice with Fried Onions
6 tablespoons olive oil
1 large white onion, sliced into rings
I used 2 cooking time I'll use 3
1 1/3 cups uncooked green lentils
3/4 cup uncooked long-grain white rice
salt and pepper to taste
1/4 cup plain yogurt or sour cream (optional)

after reading the comments
I also added
1 tsp cumin
1/4 tsp cinnamon

-Heat the olive oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Stir in the onions, and cook about 10 minutes, until browned. Remove from heat, and set aside.
-Place lentils in a medium saucepan with enough lightly salted water to cover. Bring to a boil, reduce heat, and simmer about 15 minutes.
-Stir rice and enough water to cover into the saucepan with the lentils. Season with salt and pepper. Cover saucepan, and continue to simmer 15 to 20 minutes, until rice and lentils are tender.
-Mix half the onions into the lentil mixture. Top with yogurt or sour cream and remaining onions to serve.

This was seriously so easy
and the taste was amazing

It seems that my boy
needs to take photos
of the meals now also

My girly
seems she is attached
to her bike helmet
