Mujaddara is an amazing 'one-pot' meal native to Palestinian cuisine. It's comprised of rice, sauteed onions, brown lentils, and the smoky flavor of cumin. It's healthy, hearty, and even vegetarian. Make it an even healthier dish by swapping out the white rice for brown rice, quinoa, or bulghar wheat. ---------------------------------------------------------------------- Mujaddara (Lentil Rice Casserole) 1 cup brown lentils 3 cloves garlic, minced 1 cup rice 1 tsp. cumin 1 1/2 tsp. salt 1/8 tsp. freshly ground pepper 2 medium onions 2 tbsp. olive oil 1. Start boiling some water for use later. 2. Wash lentils and put in large cooking pot with 2 cups cold water. Add garlic. Bring to boil, lower heat, cover and simmer for 15 minutes. 3. While lentils cook, start soaking the rice. Place rice in heat-resistant bowl, cover with boiling water and stir. Soak rice for about 15 minutes. 4. Drain rice well and mix with the cooked lentils and 1½ cups hot water. Add cumin, salt and pepper. Cover and simmer until all water is absorbed, about 15 minutes or longer. 5. While rice and lentils cook, halve the onions vertically and slice thinly. Fry onions in the olive oil until golden brown. 6. Transfer the mujaddara to a platter and top with the fried onion.
love the caramelized onions
@stargaze The smell of this dish cooking is always delicious. It's hard to wait sometimes, haha.
The ingredients are so simple but all so flavorful. I will have to get more garlic and try this out.
If this was cooked in front of me I would be dying to devour it. Looks so delicious!
This looks very savory! Wish I could eat it now!
