Ingredients
1 cup rice
1 cup lentils
4 cups water
1 tbs olive oil
1 chopped onion
4 chopped garlic cloves
salt to taste

Directions
1 – In high heat, heat olive oil and saute onion and garlic.
2 – Add rice, lentils and salt. Mix well and fry for about 2 minutes.
3 – Add the water and stir again. Let the heat on medium-high.
4 – Once the water dry on the surface, turn the heat to low and cover the pan.

Tips and Options
  • In place of salt and water, use vegetable broth.
  • Once you turn off the heat, add 1 grated carrot and mix. It will be even tastier and extremely colorful.
  • For a different flavor, use in butter instead of olive oil.
