Today I made a dish from Lebanon. I got married there, and have visited a few times with my husband and children . I wanted to go this summer but after reading the news this morning it may be awhile before I feel safe enough to go.
I am making more meatless dishes because I feel lighter eating this way.
simmer the lentils in water until tender, then add to pot with brown rice/water 1:2 ratio add spices simmer for 1 hour
while the rice and lentils cook slice an onion and shallow fry in a pan with vegetable oil (if you are lucky , like me you can find a little market where some one already fried the onions and you don't have to stink up your house!)
serve with side of fresh cucumber/tomato salad tossed with mint salt/pepper/olive oil/lemon juice
enjoy with fresh pita bread I prefer to eat this at room temperature.
