Total Time: 1 hrs 40 mins
Prep Time: 10 mins
Cook Time: 1 hrs 30 mins 

Servings: 6


1 medium onion, diced (you can use more if you like, I do) 
2 tablespoons olive oil 
1 cup brown rice (I use Uncle Ben’s) 
1 cup brown lentils 
4 cups water (approximately) 
1/2 teaspoon salt (you can use more or less) 


1 Heat oil in pan. 

2 add onions, and cook on medium high heat until they are brown- stir occasionally. 

3 stir in rice and lentils, mix in with onions. 

4 add water. 

5 add salt, mix contents. 

6 cover and simmer. 

7 This will take over an hour. The water will be absorbed into rice and lentils. Make sure they are soft. Sometimes you may need to add a little more water. Stir occasionally. 

8 Best if served in a shallow bowl, and let sit for 10 minutes or so. Enjoy warm or cold.
