Directions

1. Wash and thoroughly clean spinach. Coarsely chop and set aside on paper napkins or a towel to remove excess water. Set aside.

2. Chop the onion. In a small pan, heat the oil over a medium heat. Sauté the onion until transparent. Set aside.

3. Wash and sort lentils. In a large pot heat the lentils and water to a boil over a medium-high flame. Cover and reduce the heat. Let simmer for 15 minutes.

4. Rinse and pick through the rice. Add the rice and salt and pepper to the lentils. Simmer covered 10 minutes.

5. When lentils and rice are tender, stir in the spinach and half of the sautéed onions. Mix well and cook until the spinach is tender (add a bit more water if necessary).

6. Serve hot or cold topped with the remaining onions and the juice of one lemon.

 

Variations:  If you’d like, you can spice this dish up with turmeric, parsley, or cumin. You can also stir in a chopped tomato and some mild, cubed cheese at the end.
