When I found this recipe, I thought it sounded too good to be true. It’s incredibly simple, but don’t think that it isn’t flavorful. It’s amazingly good and definitely falls into the category of “comfort food”. Lentils, rice, and onions are a tasty combination.
Cook for 30 minutes over medium-low heat, stirring occasionally:
1 onion, sliced into rings
a few T. of water to prevent sticking
Meanwhile, put in the Instant Pot:
1 c. uncooked brown rice
1 c. uncooked lentils (no soaking needed)
3 1/2 c. water
Cook at high pressure for 20 minutes, then quick release. Stir in to season:
1/2 t. cumin
1/2 t. garlic powder
salt and pepper
the caramelized onions
Serve topped with plain yogurt or sour cream. Leftovers taste even better the next day!
